lyrics

Colorado
(Bella Hardy & Iain Thomson)

Sunset salute, mountain silhouette
Stands black on a russet line
Peach, blue and green, and each colour between
A flag on a blue bird sky

The bar room fills up as the light slips away
Through windows it comes radiant shining
A sunset salute as the band starts to play
The retreat march of another day

The stars and the stripes, day meets night
Over Colorado’s red rock and snow
No sound save the wind, she sings through the pines
Rooted fast to the cold below

The bar room fills up as the light slips away
Through windows it comes radiant shining
A sunset salute as the band starts to play
The retreat march of another day

Where somebody’s fathers father’s dug down for gold
Now our wealth’s in white diamond snow
And as each unique snowflake will melt in it’s time
So like dust back to dust we will go

The bar room fills up as the light slips away
Through windows it comes radiant shining
A sunset salute as the band starts to play
The retreat march of another day

From the bar room we watch as the light slips away
Through windows it pours radiant shining
A sunset salute as the band starts to play
The retreat march of another day
