Pure Prairie League – Boulder Skies lyrics

Sew your skirt lace out of time,
While I write the words to rhyme
Just what I am thinking,
Just what I should say.
If I have to go I'd rather stay.

Colorado canyon girl who set me free,
Brown eyes in the morning looking back at me
And just for that one moment
You're all that I see
Searching for some other place to be.

More than anyone can try I hope you'll see
That I belong standing right before your eyes. If you can take the time to find where I went wrong, then I think you just might realize.

So sew your skirt lace and I'll go home.
But not quite where I started from.
And take it so you'll feel it
And take it so you'll know.
Take one long last look before I go.

More than anyone can try I hope you'll see
That I belong
Standing right before your eyes.
When you have the time to see it's been
Too long, then I'll come on back to Boulder Skies.

    I once had a lovely woman for my wife in boulder and we had met in the mountains of colorado. We married and made a home for ourselves in boulder but over time we grew apart, she left me and I returned back east close to where I started from. I keep hoping she'll ask me back to boulder skies so once again we'll be side by side. Brown eyes in the morning looking back at me.
