Dimming Of The Day
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


This old house is falling down around my ears
I'm drowning in a river of my tears
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

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

I had this played at my wife’s funeral. She passed from cancer on October 15th 2019. It took her life in seven and a half months. I miss her so much.

Her voice has always given me chills.

This song is so beautiful. I've been lucky enough to see her live 5 times. She is so amazing. I was so happy when she finally won grammys. A long time coming.

This song takes me back to another time and place in my life. This song came out when I first met my husband, over 20 years ago. Listening to this song today, with my husband still by my side after all these years was like finding a hidden and long forgotten treasure, and all the memories came rushing back along with some tears. It still holds up, and is better than most music heard on the radio today.
