Sunsets Say Goodbye


Trevor Borden wrote this song as he was saying "goodbye" to Portugal. The last days of my time in Portugal happened to be the last days of the Borden's, too. I'd come home awfully late to the Borden's house and find Trev tinkering away on his guitar, outside in the garden. Eventhough it was past midnight, we'd put on the tea and he'd keep tinkering. It's such a sacred thing to hear the song of a friend develop. This one would probably be the title track on my leaving-Portugal-soundtrack. I can't wait till Trevor gets to record it in a studio out in L.A., hopefully very very soon. He recorded this one at home.

Sunsets Say Goodbye in Streaming Audio

Shadows fall the day is done
They chase each other 'till all light is gone
Watch him hold her now, the moon rises
But they speak in silence
What good are words now?

Sunsetssaygoodbyetothesea
Who gently waves her fare-well
And I say “Hello” to the change
You've brought me this far

Huddled close, their bags are packed
Awkward father frowns while mother weeps
Look around this is the last time they will be here together
They move on together
Hope has bound them strong as they look forward to the adventure of tomorrow
“All aboard!” cries the conductor of change

Sunsetssaygoodbyetothesea
Who gently waves her fare-well
And I say “Hello” to the change
You've brought me this far

Oh Nelly! This song! That boy! When he sang it in Holland I was watching people respond and they were freaking out. One guy who was asking me, "Do you know where I can get this music? I'm crying here!" Just when my heart was getting stable again, you remind me!
