lyrics

When you left me here, stranded in the east
Not a kiss farewell or words to bring me peace
The sun would not rise no matter when I woke
Your name would pass through my teeth like smoke

Is the great wide sky
Just a pretty, empty thing
Like a blind blue eye
A song no one will sing?

Seems an age ago when you took my hand and said
Let’s stop standing still, and run away instead
All my thoughts and dreams are tumbling through my head
Rollin’ round like stones over the river bed

Is the great wide sky
Just a pretty, empty thing
Like a blind blue eye
A song no one will sing?

Trying to understand but I can’t stand to wait
So skip the parable and tell it to me straight

Is the great wide sky
Just a pretty, empty thing
Like a blind blue eye
A song no one will sing?

Is the great wide sky
Just a pretty, empty thing
Or a blinding light,
A song that I can sing?
