I want to ride the range across those skies of black
I want to see for myself and see me coming back
And when I've gone the distance I'll be making tracks
For an English sunset

We're on a runaway train rolling down the track
And where it's taking us to who knows where it's at
But if we hold together we can make it back
For an English sunset, we want an English sunset

I feel the rhythm of the earth in my soul tonight
May it never fade away and I've decided I can live
With humility and the sad decay
'Cos that's the English way

We keep the faith alive in everything we do
And at the end of the road we still keep coming through
And though it's sad and sorry what else can we do
It's an English sunset, an English sunset

I feel the rhythm of the earth in my soul tonight
May it never fade away
And I've decided they can wait for the requiem
We take it day by day 'cos that's the English way
I saw the English sunset
