Louise, Emma - 1000 Sundowns Lyrics

I met a boy who made me cry
He said "stay away from my kind"
I said I appreciate his honesty and I
stayed away for a while

Then he cried and I laughed on the telephone
And we talked for hours
He says he wants to be a rock-star
So do I, so do I
Guess it would never work out

But on these summer nights
When the weather's right
I miss him by my side
Oh by my side

And when the wind blows wrecks from the hills
On these April nights, I'll think of him
Oh the boy who surely taught me how to love
Showed me how to trust
And I gave in

And oh our love it was so strong
It was so deep
And we were young
And I was a little bit naive
But still how I was in his arms for one thousand sundowns

It was a love worth remembering
And on these summer nights
When the weather's right
I miss him by my side
Oh by my side

And oh, my darling
Please say you miss me too
On these summer nights
I miss me by your side

And I know I'll see your face at the gates of heaven
When it's my turn to go
But oh Lord, please do not pass judgment on us
We were but young and full of love
And oh please let me cry in his arms
Just once more
For one thousand sundowns
For one thousand sundowns
