Jackson BrowneSky Blue And Black

In the calling out to one another Of the lovers up and down the strand In the sound of the waves and the cries Of the seagulls circling the sand In the fragments of the songs Carried down the wind from some radio In the murmuring of the city in the distance Ominous and low I hear the sound of the world where we played And the far too simple beauty Of the promises we made If you ever need holding Call my name, I'll be there If you ever need holding And no holding back, I'll see you through Sky blue and black Where the touch of the lover ends And the soul of the friend begins There's a need to be separate and a need to be one And a struggle neither wins Where you gave me the world I was in And a place I could make a stand I could never see how you doubted me When I'd let go of your hand Yeah, and I was much younger then And I must have thought that I would know If things were going to end And the heavens were rolling Like a wheel on a track And our sky was unfolding And it'll never fold back Sky blue and black And I'd have fought the world for you If I thought that you wanted me to Or put aside what was true or untrue If I'd known that's what you needed What you needed me to do But the moment has passed by me now To have put away my pride And just come through for you somehow If you ever need holding Call my name, I'll be there If you ever need holding And no holding back, I'll see you through You're the color of the sky Reflected in each store-front window pane You're the whispering and the sighing Of my tires in the rain-acapo
