Dm Dm7   Dm         C    Dm
The sun is sleeping quietly
Dm7  Dm     C       F
Once upon a century.
F7        F          C             F
Wistful oceans calm and red
F7        F            C        Dm
Ardent caresses laid to rest
Dm7    Dm         C          Dm
For my dreams I hold my life
                       C           B
For wishes I behold my nights
                                Gm
A truth at the end of time
           C                    Dm
Losing faith makes a crime.

Chorus:
  Dm                                    B             F
I wish for this night-time to last for a life-time
      Gm           Dm                          B             F  C
The darkness around me – shores of a solar sea
      Dm                     B                     C
Oh, how I wish to go down with the sun
F             C            Dm
Sleeping, weeping with you.

Dm                C         Dm
Sorrow has a human heart
                         C        F
From my God it will depart
                         C               F
I`d sail before a thousand moons
                      C           Dm
Never finding where to go
                                 C         Dm
Two hundred twenty days of light
                       C      B
Will be desired by a night
                                       Gm
A moment for the poet`s play
                                  C        Dm
Until there`s nothing left to say.

Chorus.

I wish for this night-time to last for a life-time,
       Bm          Fm                           C#          Ab Db
The darkness around me – shores of a solar sea.

Oh, how I wish to go down with the sun
Ab          Eb                   Fm
Sleeping, weeping with you.
