lyrics

Stay with me till I am gone I won’t be very long
For this shadow crept up by inches
And the inches lined up are the measure of my life
And my breath slows the hand of time
Sun down, sun down
When all your world goes to ground
The earth gives way beneath your feet and you fall
Sun down, sun down

He said,
“I feel like I’m wasting away
And the living world grows thinner every day
Now no nourishment can satisfy”
And he laid down his head, and closed his eyes

Now all I can remember
Is the last time he smiled at me
Saying we would both be alright

Sun down, sun down

When all your world goes to ground
The earth gives way beneath your feet and you fall
Sun down, sun down

And my breath now slows the hand of time

about

Brian Ledford Port Townsend, Washington

Brian Ledford draws from his roots and what’s close to his heart and transforms it into great songs.

Music as much informed by The Clash as The Flatlanders. At turns as lush as Lanois, or as direct as Cash. The son of Oklahoma concrete finishers and Oilmen, he was born and raised in Texas based in Lubbock, Ft. Worth and Austin before relocating to the Pacific Northwest.
