Lyrics

The View from Up Here
By Antara Blasius and Delilah Poupore © 2003

Verse 1
Pull my chair up to the window
Let the sunlight hurt my eyes
Far above the sparkling harbor
I bid the city goodnight
Sun sets behind the mountains
Leaving trails where it once stood
A sunset like a memory
Only leaving what is good

Chorus
And the view from up here
Leaves the city in its wake
And I can?t wait for morning
To see the sky at daybreak
?Cause something?s almost clear:
Must be the view from up here


Verse 2
A fit and fretful night
All my children are awake
I sing them each a lovesong
But kind words will not take
They are anxious for the morning
They have seen the setting sun
They are ready for rebirthing
For their birthing is not done

Chorus
And the view from up here
Leaves the city in its wake
And I can?t wait for morning
To see the sky at daybreak
?Cause something?s almost clear:
Must be the view from up here


Verse 3
Now morning comes on gently
Though the crow?s the loudest voice
I am thinking that I hate it
?Cause it?s leaving me no choice
Then I open the Venetians
And I feel the soothing cool
Of morning in the mountains
Oh I love this earthen school

Chorus
And the view from up here
Leaves the city in its wake
And now it is the morning
And I?m with the sky at daybreak
?Cause something?s almost clear
Yeah, something?s almost clear
Oh, something?s coming clear:
Must be the view from up here
