The View From Here Lyrics

Bob Bennett & Tom Prasada-Rao
© 2002 Bright Avenue Songs (ASCAP) & Simple Gift Music (BMI)

My apartment overlooks the railroad tracks
And a city salvage yard across the way
That's where they bring all the broken things
Just like me, they can't throw anything away

Sometimes at night I see the fading, flashing lights
Of the barricades that used to warn the cars
An earthbound astronaut, I can connect the dots
To see the constellations in those stars

Sometimes I can see what's right in front of me
I can hear what's being whispered in my ear
It's not like I planned but from where I stand
I can see the view from here

There's just one little train that runs by here
Some tanker cars, the occasional caboose
It can never look back, it just follows the tracks
Me, I don't have the same excuse

The first early morning I heard him
I thought he was a jerk
This guy who whistled through my
Window as he worked
But now when I hear him
I can't help but wonder why
If that guy can whistle
Then why can't I?
