When the Sun Goes Down lyrics

[Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mandy Gonzalez, Christopher Jackson]

[BENNY]
When the sun goes down
You’re gonna need a flashlight
You’re gonna need a candle—

[NINA]
I think I can manage that

[BENNY]
When you leave town
I’m gonna buy you a calling card

[BENNY/NINA]
‘Cuz I’m falling hard for you

[NINA]
I go back on Labor Day

[BENNY]
And I will try to make my way

[BENNY/NINA]
Out west to California

[BENNY]
So we’ve got this summer

[NINA]
And we’ve got each other
Perhaps even longer

[BENNY]
When you’re on your own
And suddenly without me
Will you forget about me?

[NINA]
I couldn’t if I tried

[BENNY]
When I’m all alone
And I close my eyes

[BENNY/NINA]
That’s when I’ll see your face again

[BENNY]
And when you’re gone
You know that I’ll be waiting when you’re gone

[NINA]
But you’re here with me right now…

[BENNY]
We’ll be working hard, but if we should drift apart

[NINA]
Benny—

[BENNY]
Lemme take this moment just to say—

[NINA]
No, no—

[BENNY]
You are gonna change the world some day—

[NINA]
I’ll be thinking of home—

[BENNY/NINA]
And I’ll think of you every night
At the same time—

[BENNY]
When the sun goes down

[NINA]
When the sun goes down

[BENNY]
When the sun goes down.
