Watching The Sun Go Down

As I sit here today and watch the sun go down.
I think of you watching it in another town.
I wonder what you see in your part of the sky.
Are there clouds in the air or have they gone passing by.

Now the sun is almost gone and the moon is almost here.
And I think of you my friend and wish you were near.
But later when I sleep I'll dream of a time to come
Of a beautiful sunset, of a North Carolina sun.

To be watching a sunset with my best friend
From the start of it to the very end.
What a wonderful thought as I watch the sun go down,
To be able to watch it with you in the same town.
