Song: Kim Churchill “Window into the Sky”

Lyrics

I was running for the hills, I knew no more about today
We came back with sinking froth, lead the way not much to say
My selections crawled away, to deal with this mess
Falling at my feet, I knew my time was going down, wasn’t long
Sinking into me, what can I do for you and what do you want?
What do you love?
To my window to the sky
To my window to the sky
Falling down, I thought I had it all wrapped up inside my head
But I was rearranging thoughts for other’s eyes instead
Falling at my feet, I knew my time was going down, wasn’t long
Sinking into me, what can I do for you and what do you want?
What do you love?
To my window to the sky
To my window to the sky
To my window to the sky
And there were times when I thought I could hold somebody’s hand,
that I deserved it and someone would understand
But I just seem to break the people that I find
To my window to the sky and I’m thankful for you today
To my window to the sky and your right, I feel okay
A pair of diamonds in her eyes, will be so sure to walk away
To my window to the sky
To my window to the sky
Falling at my feet, I knew my time was going down, wasn’t long
