This old house is falling down around my ears
I'm drowning in a river of my tears
When all my will is gone you hold me sway
I need you at the dimming of the day

You pulled me like the moon pulls on the tide
You know just where I keep my better side

What days have come to keep us far apart
A broken promise or his broken heart
Now all the bonny birds wheeled away
I need you at the dimming of the day

Come the night you're only what I want
Come the night you could be my confidante
Aah aah aah ah

I see you on a street in company
Why don't you come an' ease your mind with me
I'm living for the night we steal away
I need you at the dimming of the day
Yes, I need you at the dimming of the day
