Another thousand sunsets, like the thousand gone before.
When the last one's over, there will start a thousand more.
Sunsets in the mountains, in the deserts, in the town.
Sunsets on the ocean where it seems the sun might drown.
I have seen them over forest; I have seen them over field;
Watched the ruby-painted sky that the twilight has revealed.
I have seen them when I'm sober; I have seen them when I'm drunk;
I have seen them in high spirits and when my heart has sunk.
I have seen them when I'm lonely, I have seen them by love's light;
I have seen the dying of the day and the fires it can ignite.
And every time I watch again as the darkness starts to fall
I remember every one of them, I can recall them all.
There'll be another thousand sunsets. I know that this is true.
But the best thing about sunsets is that sunrise will come too.
