Farewell Sunset

There was something in the way That the sun left the sky that day; And when the Sun began to sink The way the orange and red and pink Dissolved and blended through The green and brown and blue On my beloved, sweet bayou Somehow, I think I knew... This storm was coming with my name And we would never be the same You and me, our chosen city Would soon be named a nation’s pity; This farewell sunset calls to me, Beckons us to come live free And forever let the fires burn Until one day we can return
