Goodbye Sky Harbor

  • Is tomorrow just a day like all the rest
    How could you know just what you did?
    So full of faith yet so full of doubt I ask
    Time and time again you said don't be afraid
    If you believe you can do it
    The only voice I want to hear is yours
    Again
    I shall ask you this once again
    And again
    He said,
    I am but one small instrument
    Do you remember that?
    So here I am above palm trees so straight and tall
    You are smaller, getting smaller
    But I still see you Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song is 16 minutes long. The lyrics get stuck in my head for days.
  • Sara from Quinton, OkOH WOW...I didn't even think about the Owen Meany references! I love JEW and we had to read the book for English and I kept thinking it sounded familiar. I spent the summer in Arizona maybe 10 minutes from Sky Harbor. WOW...wow. That is very cool; this is why I love this site. :-D
  • Megan from Iowa City, IlI've loved this song since the moment I first heard it. Then, a strange thing happened: I read "A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving this past summer, and realized that I knew some of the quotes from the book directly. Actually, nearly EVERY lyric from the song is taken directly from the book, but the dead giveaway is the last line, "So here I am above palm trees, so straight and tall. You are smaller, getting smaller, but I still see you." Fantastic book & Song.
  • Jeffrey from Monterey, CaThis is an excellent song, one of my favorites. It is probably the best Jimmy Eat World song there is.
  • Jediah from Evergreen\, CoThis song is based off the book "A Prayer For Owen Meany" by John Irving. It includes Numerous direct quotes from the book.
