The sun was going down
Over Echo Park
Wet raven hair
Glowing in the dark
And that's when the fever would rise
And lord what a look in her eyes
From the moment that she blows out the light
We'd be lost in the forever night

Hold back the dawn
Hold back the dawn
Won't you raise up your hand
And hold back the dawn

I dreamt if I could lay you upon this bed of straw
