It happened pretty quickly, over a matter of days
Then they were running upstairs through warm pink rays
He looked up through the skylight as she took off her dress
And told, "Love is like a sunset - it's beauty before darkness"

She moved quickly when he touched her, walked to the kitchenette
And started making coffee while he talked about regrets
She said, "It's no use to fight it, now don't get so distressed.
I told you love is like a sunset. It's beauty before darkness.

And it's always been that way, that's how it's going to stay
There's nothing you can say to stop love fading away".

Now he's made a little money, he's got a place up on the hill
He goes up to the attic where the world is quiet and still
He looks across the city to that red glow in the west
Love is like a sunset, it's beauty before darkness
I told you love is like a sunset, it's beauty before darkness
