Ricky Skaggs – Window Up Above lyrics

I've been living a new way,
All the life that I love so.
But I can see the clouds are gathering,
And the storm will wreck our home.
For last night he held you tightly,
And you didn't even shove.
This is true for I was watching,
From the window up above.

You must have thought that I was sleeping,
And I wish that I had been.
But it's best to get to know you,
And the way your heart can sin.
I thought we belonged together,
And our hearts fit like a glove.
I was wrong for I've been watching,
From the window up above.

From my eyes, a teardrop started,
As I listened on and on.
I heard you whisper to him, softly,
And our marriage was all wrong.
Well, I hope he makes you happy,
And you'll never lose his love.
I lost mine while I was watching,
From the window above.

How I wish I could be dreamin',
And wake up to a love that's true.
I lost mine while I was watching,
From the window up above.
