Great Big Sea – Widow In The Window lyrics

Waiting for the nightingale to sing
Waiting for the harbour lights to dim
I've been on the outside looking in
While the widow in the window waits for him

[Chorus 1]
But he won't be back
Won't you realize that
He's laughing at your sorrow

Waiting for a ship that won't come in
Waiting for a tear to reach her chin
I'm knocking, but she will not let me in

[Chorus 2:]
And he won't be back
Can't you realize that
He's laughing at your sorrow
How can I explain, your love is all in vain
While he wastes your precious hours
I could fill your days with flowers

Bridge Of a lover that I can never be
How can I begin, to make you love again
And try to make you see

[Chorus 1 + 2]
