Outside My Window

Album: Sarah Buxton (2010)
  • Outside my window I see a red bird singin' sittin' on a wire
    Wish I knew what hes thinkin' outside my window
    I see a couple kissin huggin' and a-lovin'
    Man, that's just what I've been missin'

    These days when everythin' is crazy
    Some things are never ever changin'

    (You) still need stars when you're wishin' at night
    A best friend to set you right, a good laugh, a warm bath
    And a beautiful song you can sing along to
    Good news that'll make you cry
    All the little things that money cant buy
    No wars, no more, just a big rainbow outside my window
    La la la la la la

    Outside my window I see the bluest ocean
    Sails in the sunlight rockin' in the sweetest motion
    Outside my window I hear a church bell ringin'
    Nobody fightin' over what hymn they're singin'

    I know I'm dreamin' like a child
    But some things just don't go out of style like

    (You) still need stars when you're wishin' at night
    A best friend to set you right, a good laugh, a warm bath
    And a beautiful song you can sing along to
    Good news that'll make you cry
    All the little things that money cant buy
    No wars, no more, just a big rainbow outside my window
    La la la la la la
    (La la la la la la, outside my window)
    (Everybody look outside my window, la la la la la la)


    Outside my window I see a flag that's wavin'
    Hands joined together, everybody's celebrating, yeah

    La la la la la la, outside my window
    La la la la la la, everybody's lookin' outside my window

    (You) still need stars when you're wishin' at night
    A best friend to set you right, a good laugh, a warm bath
    And a beautiful song you can sing along to
    Good news that'll make you cry
    All the little things that money cant buy
    No wars, no more, just a big rainbow outside my window
    La la la la la la (outside my window)
    (La la la la la la, outside my window)
    (Everybody look outside my window, la la la la la la)
