When the evening falls
And the daylight is fading,
From within me calls
Could it be I am sleeping?
For a moment I stray,
Then it holds me completely
Close to home - I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

As I walk the room there before me a shadow
From another world, where no other can follow
Carry me to my own, to where I can cross over
Close to home - I cannot say
Close to home feeling so far away

Forever searching; never right,
I am lost in oceans of night.
Forever hoping I can find memories
Those memories I left behind

Even though I leave will I go on believing
That this time is real - am I lost in this feeling?
Like a child passing through,
Never knowing the reason
I am home - I know the way
I am home - feeling oh, so far away

    General Comment: This song is maybe about someone who just died and his or her ghost wandering about its former home. The ghost (or spirit) is in disbelief of what just happened and
    trying to recognize its former possessions but it can't. Its memory is fading just like the daylight or the life in its body. One of my favourite. When I listened this for the first time, I stopped everything I was doing till I had listened it for 5 or 6th time.

    Song Meaning:Evening Falls is of one who is lost and alone in their thoughts, living a lonely life as days pass by and daylight fades; they are haunted by their past. They are attempting to escape it and instead feel the presence of their domain.
