Widow In The Window Lyrics

Artist: Great Big Sea
Album: Sea Of No Cares

(written by Alan Doyle / San McCann / Chris Trapper)

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

CHORUS 1:
But he won't be back
Can't you realize that?
And 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 knockin', but she will not let me in.

CHORUS 2:
And he won't be back
Can't you realize that?
And 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.

How can I replace the smile upon a face
Of a lover that I can never be
How can I begin to make you love again
And try to make you see

And he won't be back
Can't you realize that?
And he's laughing at
Your sorrow

CHORUS 1 + 2

Flowers (x10)
