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
