Red sun, going down where the boats all disappear
In my dreams I saw a thousand empty cities
papers blowing through the air

Red sun, when I'm gone, far away from all those lights
Something she can remember me by
to get us through the nights

Red sun, when I'm gone, your ancient fingers in her hair

Have you ever wanted something so bad it made you crazy
But you know if you try to reach up for it, man, it'll vanish in the air?

Well that's how I feel right now, about my days
Broken by the wind and beaten by the waves

Red sun, get me out of this one
