Lyrics

Through My Window

Written By: Nicole Coward

Fly by my window, take a seat, rest your feet, it will comfort me
Sing through my window, sounds so sweet, sounds so free, how you comfort me

Chorus
And you are a part of me, and I am a part of you, you see
So don’t shy away now because the circle always completes

Stay by my window, I see you speak, but I don’t hear…so overcome by fear
Please smile into my window, do you see, reflected so deep, how you comfort me?
(Chorus)
So come, come through my window, please believe that you heal me, with the joy you bring…
(Chorus)
