For the Setting Sun

by Marc Gunn

This song started with a riff on the autoharp. When i had that down, I just started writing a stream of conscience song about a girl I had a crush on. It evolved into a bluesy song that I recorded for my CD, What Color Is Your Dragon?.

Sometimes my empathy is overwhelming.
I feel like I can get inside your head.
But there are times like last night
When it feels like a fight
To shade my love and fear
To watch where you tread.

I gotta admit that I am in love with you.
And now and then I hear you say the same.
But you live so far away
And patience seems so gray
That I can't tell if your love
Is just a dwindling flame.

I've a friend who helps me fly with my dreams.
Then he drops me, and I crash into the sea.
Now I swirl in despair
Wondering if you care
Enough to keep my dreams
From falling to debris.

I'm not sure what I need to allay my fears.
I don't expect you to give more than you've done.
But I'm in flight with my love,
And the winds are rather rough.
So I just hope that you'll join me
For the setting sun.
