Life From A Window - Lyrics by Jam, The


Looking from a hilltop, watching from a lighthouse, just dreaming
Up here i can see the world
Ooh, sometimes it don't look nice - that's ok
Life from a window, i'm just taking in the view
Life from a window, observing everything around you
Staring at a grey sky, try to paint it blue -
Teenage blue
Some people that you see around you
Tell you how devoted they are
They tell you something on sunday, but come monday
They've changed their minds
I'm looking from a skyscraper
I'm standing on the post office tower
So i can see - all there is to see
