(First verse)
I'm leaving
Booked my flight the other night
Retrieving all my laundry,
packing light

You're heaving
in a last plea you call me "wife"
that I'm anchored to that life

But why would I be?
Could this wasteland hold a fly?
I'd rather be free
than sit and sift through all the lies

My heart tugs at me
I want to hold you through the night
But infinity is
the horizon in my eyes

Darling, don't be afraid to face me
Please, hear me, please, don't evade me
What I'd give to keep the love we made, baby
But I must sing, you know I've been waiting...

This is my song for sundown
This is my song for saying goodbye
It's just been so long since we honestly tried
Whatever we've grown has withered and died

Yes, this is my song for sundown
This is my way of telling you why
Now don't you tell me it's wrong to make a grown man cry
'Cause I can still see that spark in your eye

(Second verse)
I'm en route
I think about you as I drive
I want you
but I need a different life
In all truth
I feel the change is worth the strife
But it's too
soon to know if this is right

(Bridge 2)
Oh, you must be at home
on bent knees, praying
I can feel all the sorrow you're conveying
But if I don't go I'd only be delaying
the ending for us, the song's already playing...

(Repeat chorus)
Oh boy, I've had this song on the back burner for awhile, but I just came up with a lot on the drive home (seems to be the best time to write songs :) ). I want to write at least another verse for this.

This song is going to be the titular track on my first album ("Songs for Sundown")...I don't have a recording yet but soon will. It's also my only country-style song so far :)
