When The Evening Comes

As the evening’s winding down
As the dark cools off the day
The night’s as soothing as the sounds
Of Lena Horne and Marvin Gaye
Feel the revival in your soul
As the evening goes our way

You were so small and sweet
Atop a smile that never ended
My splintered heart so incomplete
In longer shadows time has mended
The moonlight showing the way
To brighter nights from darker days

All the worries on your mind
Let them drift and fade away
Let’s get fully lost in time
Let’s get drawn into the sway
The city lights are casting low
Feel a revival in our souls
The best things in life are free I know
As the evening goes our way
