Beautiful Sunset – Jake Allen Sharp

The sunset is beautiful behind the Autumn Leaves

The wind is cold and blowing colors from the trees

I understand that seasons and people change

Lives fall apart and only memories remain

My thoughts are like leaves being scattered by the wind

Daylight disappears and the night is not my friend

I will lie alone, beneath a blanket of regret

Its such a beautiful sunset, a beautiful sunset

I walk in from the cold and turn the porch light on

The soft yellow glow seems to know I am alone

I hide my pain from everyone so they don’t see

When did I become a shell of who I used to be

My thoughts are like leaves being scattered by the wind

Daylight disappears and the night is not my friend

I will lie alone, beneath a blanket of regret

Its such a beautiful sunset, a beautiful sunset

The longest hours come in the middle of the night

In the darkness my pain is hidden from sight

I lay of the sofa, in the shadows of my mind

I cry for the man I was, what I have left behind

My thoughts are like leaves being scattered by the wind

Daylight disappears and the night is not my friend

I will lie alone, beneath a blanket of regret

Its such a beautiful sunset, a beautiful sunset
