The Sun Won't Set Song Lyrics

 
A Little Night Music Cast
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
The Sun Won't Set The sun sits low,
Diffusing its usual glow.

5 o’clock
Twilight
Vespers sound

And it’s 6 o’clock
Twilight all around
But the sun sits low,
As low as it’s going to go.

8 o’clock

Twilight
How enthralling…it’s
9 o’clock
Twilight
So enthralling … Towards
10 o’clock
Twilight
Crickets calling
The vespers ring
The nightingale’s waiting to sing,
The rest of us wait on a string.
Perpetual sunset is rather an unsettling thing.

The sun won’t set
It’s fruitless to hope or to fret.

It’s dark as it’s going to get.
The hands on the clock turn but don’t sing a nocturne just yet.

[Thanks to Joseph Misdraji for lyrics]
