Window on the world - John Hiatt

 

Window on the world by John Hiatt


a broken promise i kept too long
a greasy shade and a curtain drawn
a broken glass and a heart gone wrong
that's my window on the world
a cup of coffee in a shaky hand
wakin' up in a foreign land
tryin' to act like i got somethin' planned
that's my window on the world
CHORUS ONE:
that's my window on the world
could you stand a little closer, girl
don't let mama cut those curfs
that's my window on the world
in broad daylight that circus tent pulled up stakes
i don't know where it went
a close dark room with a busted vent
that's my window on the world
i think about you when i'm countin' sheep
i think about you, then i can't sleep
I think that ocean is just so deep
that's my window on the world
CHORUS tWO:
that's my window on the world
could you stand a little closer, girl
The queen of Sheba meets the duke of earle
that's my window on the world
down on indiana avenue
wes and jimmy, man they played the blues
i guess they were only passin' through
that's my window on the world
CHORUS ONE:
that's my window on the world
could you stand a little closer, girl
don't let mama cut those curfs
that's my window on the world
CHORUS tWO:
that's my window on the world
could you stand a little closer, girl
The queen of Sheba meets the duke of earle
that's my window on the world
