Well, I walked out this evening
Stood out in front of my house
To see the daylight leaving
My eyes pointed south

I felt like I was dreaming
I'd never seen the sky so red
Gave me the strangest feeling
And a voice inside me said

All my life I've been chasing setting suns
See me running up the hill when evening comes
They get further away the faster that I run
I'm getting old and tired of chasing setting suns

I walked down to the ocean
Sat on the cold hard stones
Saw the seabirds fishing and the sunlight glistening
Down on my English home

Thought back to all the things I've seen
The people I know and the places I've been
The city skylines and the fields of green
It's a wonder I've made it home

All my life I've been chasing setting suns
See me running up the hill when evening comes
They get further away the faster that I run
I'm getting old and tired of chasing setting suns

Oh-oh-oh

All my life I've been chasing setting suns
See me running up the hill when evening comes
They get further away the faster that I run
I'm getting old and tired of chasing setting suns

I'm getting old and tired of chasing setting suns
Oh, I'm getting old and tired of chasing setting suns
