Going Down

from by Samuel Davidson

about

It's a big metaphor with nautical terms. Those who can relate, will.

lyrics

Sailing away harbored pain
Trying to beat my spark alive
Pleasure traitors warring on
Reality and all her stead

Envy the day and I need an escape
From when the sun goes lower
I’ll sink into ebbing vibe
Oh the sun, it’s going down

Glimmer on a distrait salty shore
Haven I have often sought
Been routed out of ports renowned and it lacerates my soul
But comfort’s in this shroud

With matelotes like me, what a relief
Worries go when I stand up
The sun is gone the moon is up
But in this place, it’s going down

My spark has seen it’s better days
Like when I used to laze away
And dream what life was like
When the sun goes down

But now I know it’s here to stay
Sparks like mine, they don’t go away
Just ‘cause they’re bruised and a little frayed
From when the sun goes down
