Scott Walker - Sundown Lyrics




I can see her lookin' fast in a faded dress
In a room where you do what you don't confess

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round my back stairs
Sundown, you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round my back stairs

She's been lookin' like a queen in a sailor's dream
And she don't always says what you really means

Sometimes, I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better- when I'm feeling no pain
Sometimes, I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better- when I'm feeling no pain

I can see her lookin' fast in her faded jeans
She's a hard livin' woman, she's got me feeling mean
Sometimes, I think it's a shame
When I get feeling better- when I'm feeling no pain
Sometimes, I think it's a sin
When I feel like I'm winning- I'm losing again

Sundown, you better take care
If I find you've been creepin' round my back stairs

  1. keith stevenson

    2 jan 2020 Keith Stevenson super. why did this song not reach the UK radio or tv?

  2. Jay Bee

    This version sucks. Sounds like a bad lounge act in the bar of the local HoJo. No angst, no underlying rage and the guy’s voice is just plain cheesy.

    Jon Hunt

    "The guy?"

    Mikey Mattioni

    Do you have any idea who this "guy" is? This Artist is very talented and has a great voice.. This may be bad version for you.. But Scott is a genius artist and is very talented and has a great voice. Idk how old you are but try looking up his other music.

    Bearded Jagger

    Jay Bee - David Bowie practically aped Scott's phrasing and singing style and has admitted as much, so much so that when Scott wished Bowie a Happy Birthday via a talk show, it left Bowie speechless. The reverence other musicians and fans have for him is well deserved.

  3. Julie Robinson

    Such a shame we have lost this beautiful man and his beautiful voice. 💔 Rest in peace Scott.

  4. wellandtruly joshed

    Fabulous - Scott backing Scott 👍 RIP Genius 💔

  5. marty34

    I like Gordons version.

    Carl Rennhack

    So do I, but this is a good cover!

  6. Philip Mayer

    My favourite track from "We Had it All".
    The instrumentals I could listen to forever, especially from 3.13.
