Better Side


She has held on to the light…

When I can no longer see the sun.

My wife, my love, cares when none felt my need.

I have no pride without her…

By my side.

As transparent as the slow dim dusk.

My wife, my love,

I would abandon the walls within.

To be with you…

Again, and, again.

Dimming of the Day

imageedit_50_4741506364

When all my will is gone you hold me sway
And 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 a broken heart
Now all the bonny birds have wheeled away
And 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 confidant

I see you on the street and in company
Why don’t you come and 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

Bonnie Raitt
