Settle on Down

Just the sun setting sail as it touches the waves,

it slowly fails to take the darkness from your face

and you can't catch the ghosts on the sky turning red.

You watch the boats as if your troubles rode on them.

Settle on down right by my side.

Take your troubles and just let them ride

like the sailboats on the water glide.

Chasing after the light and the ships on the bay,

if you should die, tomorrow they'd take you away.

Let the dying go on, they can sail without you

and is it wrong for me to need you like I do?

Settle on down right by my side.

Trust the feeling that you've long denied.

Let it carry you along the tide.

I just want to drift across the blue deep in your eyes

and feel the waves and tears flowing by.

Settle on down right by my side.

Let somebody on the docks decide

where the ghosts and ships will spend the night.
