Sunset over the  city aren't likresunset over the country
City sunsets sure as heck aint pretty
The dingy sun that been laboring  all day,
Calls it quit, climbs out of sky and gets on its way
And it struggles through the clouds of smog, hurrying for it off so it can go spend its pay 
Their aren't no colors u might fine nice
It aint romantic it,
It mechanical and brash 


But sunset over city,
Are like sunrises, of city light
Sunset over cities
Bring city nights
When a  city that work all day,
Finally get it pay. 
And dreams and plays
Sunset over city
Bring dawn of city lights
From orange glow of street lights
To the neon light tell where's to get good meal and have some rest after long way 
To the blinking skyscrapers, shrine to the Industryof tommorrow, today 
The human made dawn
Seem to span a peroid of lucid dreaming, unlike in a day
And, they make up for lousy sunsets
In it very special way
