lyrics

The Sky Line
Words and Music by David Elias – 2/16/02

If you want to see an angel
Better walk real slow
If you want to meet a stranger
Forget the ones you know
If you want to see the sky
Take a walk on down the line
If you want to fall in love
You can do it anytime

It all came clear when I
Laid above the rain
If she’ll keep me here
Then I’ll be in love again

If you want to write a poem
Become a hummingbird
If you need another home
Find a tree with hay to burn
If you want to spell your secret
Warm your hands and jump on in
The window looks inviting
But the vision is within

It all came clear when I
Laid up in the rain
If she keeps me here
Then I’ll be in love again

If you want to learn a new step
Seek the shore alone
If you want to try the two-step
Whisper close and slow
If you want to touch the sky line
Lean against me here
We’re in the minute now
With lots of time to spare

It all came clear when I
Laid up by the rain
If she keeps me here
Then I’ll stay in love with rain
