Lyrics

Sometime you glimpse at simmering childhood sense of things
Sometime you sense that simple thing it brings
Most times you're lonely say it's something you once knew
Sometimes you glimpse and it is gone from view
(Sometimes you glimpse and it is gone from view)

It seems that most of the people that care the most about it
Have got their backs against the wall
So it's no big surprise for me to hear you say
That you're behind the old eight ball

Songbird sail away
Jet plane fly
Can't leave the land today but
What a blue, clear sky
(Blue, clear sky)

You say you lost your money and you lost your wife
Go out to have to hang unto yourself somehow
Say you're a self-made man and so you know how to lose
But sure could use some good news now

Songbird sail away
Jet plane fly
Can't leave the land today but
What a blue, clear sky
(Blue, clear sky)

Sometime you glimpse at simmering childhood sense of things
Sometime you sense that simple thing it brings
Most times you're lonely say it's something you once knew
Sometimes you glimpse and it is gone from view
(Sometimes you glimpse and it is gone from view)

It's been a time now that I've look into to forget my friend
Since we all saw the landmarks fall
And in the big western world
Lots of flags unfurled in the wake of the wake-up call

Songbird sail away
Jet plane fly
Can't leave the land today but
What a blue, clear sky
Hum, hum, hum
Blue, clear sky
