  • For all the times I tried for this
    And every chance at you I missed
    I've been known to go my way, but I confess
    It made me miss you more

    I drew my line across the sand
    And set my flag in no man's land
    But here I am the one man band
    With a song that's meant for two

    And there is a light, from a higher window
    Shining down on you tonight
    And the music floats on the breeze
    Bringing an easier time
    And all of our cards are on the table
    Tell me what you want to do
    Just don't tell me that it's too late
    For me to love you

    How perfect we were meant to be
    Our warm and silent symmetry
    It's times like these when all, all we need
    Is to be reminded

    And I have flown a thousand miles
    To empty rooms and crowded isles
    And we went from cathedral bells
    To show and tell and wish you wells
    And I, I still look at you and I am blinded I am blinded

    Because there is a light, from a higher window
    Shining down on us tonight
    And the music floats on the breeze
    From an easier time

    And all of our cards are on the table
    Tell me what you want to do
    Just don't tell me that it's too late
    Don't tell me that it's too late now
    Just don't tell me that it's too late
    For me to love you Writer/s: DANIEL D. WILSON, JOSH GROBAN, THOMAS J. SALTER

  • Jerri Silver from Islip, New York 11751My husband and I have been together for sixty years. We were children taking walks on soft summer nights, lying in the grass among four-leaf clovers, staring up into the cosmos at the innumerable stars bright across the ebony sky, asking each other where the universe could ever end. We had no answer and still don't know where the finality of the cosmos ends. We did and do know that our love has no end. I can only pray that God is shining down from a Higher Window, assuring me that He has always seen the depth of our love from His Higher Window, the Window that will bring us up and through this Holy Portal when the time comes. I think even Josh Groben does not realize the profound meaning of this nostalgic song. If anyone reads this, I hope you agree with my interpretation because that will mean you too have a forever love.
