Staring out of the window
How the clouds are moving slow
Watching their broken fragments
As the tea is on the stove

Floor is scattered paper
And the dishes all undone
Before I get my life in line
I'll write me one more song

How the hours sing along
Their solemn requiem
Open sky before me
Behold me now just as I am

Listen here you old big world
Beyond my own mind's door
If you come a-knocking
Mind you ain't no bore

'Cause if you's gonna clamor
Awake my weary dream
You ought at least to offer
For my tea some cream

How the hours sing aloud
Their solemn requiem
Open sky before me
Behold me now just as I am

I have some time for thinking
When nothing else is mine
When I got the world to please
I cannot find the rhyme

Yeah, when I lose my rhythm
Where that I can float
Seems without a river
Ain't much use a boat

How the hours sing along
Their solemn requiem
Open sky before me
Behold me now just as I am

The trees just keep on growing
And the sky still making rain
When I wake I know that
For me it is the same

Ask me why I'm living
I'll say it always was
Ask why the sun is giving
And you see it don't need a cause

How the hours sing along
Their solemn requiem
Open sky before me
Behold me now just as I am
