Story behind the song
Sometimes the simplest lyrics have the greatest power. This one came from a very deep well inside, and people really responded to it. Ian was very eager to write this one, and I really like what he's done with it.
Lyrics
(v1) You’re staring, staring out the window Dwelling somewhere I can’t go Disappearing in the distance Melting with the fading snow (v2) I’m watching, watching for a signal That you’ve let him go at last Supper’s laid out on the table Wine is poured into your glass (chorus) Your madness flickers like the candle Burning out before the dawn And I'm - Breathing deep, remaining quiet Keeping vigil, holding on (v3) You’re staring, staring out the window When will you come back, my friend? When will you come back, my lover? I’ll be here at journey’s end (repeat chorus) (bridge) Wasn't he a sojourn to nowhere? Dead ends, and winding roads? You saw the sun kiss the forest Found the path where the river flowed Someday soon you'll cease to wander Finally reach the end of the maze Share with me a tale of your travels Share with me the rest of our days (repeat v1) (repeat chorus) You're staring, staring out the window.....
