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
