(Beneath A) Tyneside Sunset

from Joy and other feelings by Will Good and The Mattes



Loving and belonging in the North East of England


Put your drink down
Come outside with me
There is something I want you to see
Warm my face with your sweet breath
Hold me close beneath a Tyneside sunset

Friday nights we
Tell a week of tales
Fill our glasses, laugh at all our fails
These are friends beside us every step
Walking home beneath a Tyneside sunset

Sit yourself beside me
Hold my hand and tell me
How you feel about me
I just want to hear you say
That you see what I see
That you feel what I feel
That you need what I need
That you’re never far away

Ruby river
Drifting glassy cold
Quiet window jewels, grey and gold
Here’s a picture that we won’t forget
You with me beneath a Tyneside sunset

Let’s stay out
Until the colours dim
And the quiet of the night comes in
Here and now is where I’m happiest
Loving you beneath a Tyneside sunset
