Watch the Sky

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

I looked through your window last night, to see if you were home
I saw you sitting in your chair. It seems we’re really both alone
I’m torn apart, but deep in my heart, I know the reason why
You’re a child of the earth and I’m one who watches the sky

And I play rock and roll and it will dance me to my grave
You need the comforts of home and someone who is safe

I made love to a girl, last night. She left when were through.
She was nothing like the paradise that I had with you.
When I felt your touch my whole damned world would explode
With colors from your fire and twice as pure as gold

But I play rock and roll and it will dance me to my grave
You need the comforts of home and someone who is safe

River take me to heaven. Please don’t be so twisted and long.
She makes me feel like heaven. And I would never do her wrong …in heaven.

Love is like a fire. Long live love’s flame.
When cold it makes you warm, when burned you feel its pain.
So if your heart is breaking but you don’t know why
You’re a child of the earth and I’m one who watches the sky.

And I play rock and roll and it will dance me to my grave
You need the comforts of home and someone who is safe.
