Lipstick Sunset

There’s a lipstick sunset 
Smeared across the august sky 
There’s a bitter-sweet perfume 
Hanging in the fields 
The creek is running high 

And I left my lover waiting 
In the dawn somewhere to wonder why 
By the end of the day 
All her sweet dreams would fade 
To a lipstick sunset 

Well, a radio was playing 
And that ol’ summer heat was on the rise 
I just had to get away 
Before some sad old song 
Brought tears to my eyes 

And lord I couldn’t tell her 
That her love was only killing me 
By the end of the day 
All her sweet dreams would fade 
To a lipstick sunset 

Well it’s pretty as a picture baby 
Red and blushing just before the night 
Maybe love’s like that for me 
Maybe I can only see 
As you take away the light 

So hold me in the darkness 
We can dream about the cool twilight 
‘Til the end of the day 
I can make my getaway 
To a lipstick sunset 

Til the end of the day 
I can make my getaway 
To a lipstick sunset 

There will come another day 
Then I’ll make my getaway 
To a lipstick sunset

Raining at nightfall
is a red lipstick sunset
followed by storms.

“The Road Goes On And On Into The Sunset”  —  Image by kenne

A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon

and then dripped over and was gone,

and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone,

and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag,

hung over the spot of its going.

And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon,

and darkness crept over the land from the east.

― John SteinbeckThe Grapes of Wrath
