Window On The World
written by John Hiatt

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]
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]
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]
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]
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
