  1. Skylights

From the recording October Sky

Lyrics

V1:
The daylight shows me structures of glass and steel
With giant names, bland colors, and nothing to feel
At daytime it's clear to see
The city feeds on busy feet
I await the time when the night rears her head

V2:
Daytime people moving at the speed of sound
Tourists, loud cars, shopping malls all around
But hours and hours go by
Until the clouds separate in the sky
And the lights are here and they're taking over me

Chorus:
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are looking down at me
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are hovering over me

V3:
The buildings' lights shine brighter than stars from space
And giant billboards' lights glare with style and grace
From a distance or far away
You can tell when they come out to play
The skylights in the city of the world

Chorus 2:
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are looking down at me
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are hovering over me

Bridge:
It's the nighttime that I'm destined to see
The lights shine bright red, blue, and green
And when the night falls they call out to me
At nighttime is where I'm supposed to be
Supposed to be...
Supposed to be...

Chorus:
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are looking down at me
The skylights, I'm looking at the skylights
They glisten over me
The skylights are hovering over me
The skylights are hovering over me
The skylights are hovering over me
