Have you ever seen a loved one before they see you?
Their face lost in thought or the work that they do
And then you realize this must be what they’re like
All alone clock ticking away in an empty room
It fills you with sadness like the light of late afternoon

The fog leaves the hills for the embrace of the sun
It’s burned away before the day is done
We all know how it feels to say goodbye
Putting miles bewteen us and the wreckage we’ve strewn
Torn apart by the light of late afternoon

The light goes where the shadows allow
I’m lost in the here and now

You stood in the kitchen with tears on your face
I looked for answers inside our embrace
If I could I’d keep the world from hurting you
Send the fears flying away like black balloons
Protect and keep you from the light of late afternoon
