Window On The World
Written by: John Hiatt
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: License to Chill (2004)

Lyrics:
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

That’s my window on the world
Could you stand a little closer, girl
Don’t let mama cut those curls
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 the ocean is just so deep
That’s my window on the world

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

That’s my window on the world
Could you stand a little closer, girl
Don’t let mama cut those curls
That’s my window on the world

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
