1. Don't let the sun go down on me.
2. I can't light no more of your darkness.

1- It´s not literal, it´s metaphorical, a figure of speech. A site has translated it into "não deixe as coisas esfriarem sobre nós". Could be.
Some people claim that it´s like the warm of a friendship, of help and support in times of duress, etc. 
When the other person let you down, and let you fend for yourself, it would be like the one asking is getting in the dark.  In other words - it means "don´t leave me" etc.

2- Não posso mais iluminar sua escuridão.
