At My Window


I've said it several times and I'll say it again - Townes Van Zandt is an amazing musician, singer, songwriter and an absolute lost soul.

"At My Window" is the first song on one of our Townes Van Zandt albums and I'll turn it on in the morning while I get started with work. Sitting in my office looking out the window, thinking about the day, days past and days to come. I like this song.

Favorite lyrics:
Time flows
Through brave beginnings
And she leaves her endings
Beneath our feet

Here's a live version of "At My Window" with full band in 1987.



At my window
Watching the sun go
Hoping the stars know
It's time to shine
Daydreams
Aloft on dark wings
Soft as the sun streams
At days decline

Living is laughing
Dying says nothing at all
Baby and I are laying here
Watching the evening fall

Time flows
Through brave beginnings
And she leaves her endings
Beneath our feet
Walk lightly
Upon their faces
Leave gentle traces
Upon their sleep

Living is dancing
Dying does nothing at all
Baby and I are laying here
Wathing the evening fall

Three dimes
Hard luck and good times
Fast lines and low rhymes
Ain't much to say
Feel fine
Feel low and lazy
Feel grey and hazy
Feel far away

Living is sighing
Dying ain't flying so high
Baby and I are lying here
Watching the day go by
