Lyrics

The Window
Words and Music: John p Flynn

Verse 1:
Listen to this guy with the same old lines
In a dimly lit room as time goes bye
Telling me how he wants to run my life
With rules and put-downs to keep me right

Looked at the wall, and what did I see
A brightly lit window staring back at me
Thought I'd check it out, I saw no harm
The window was open with an inviting charm

I took a step through to the other side
A beautiful scene to my surprise
There was grass and trees up to the sky
The feeling was great just to be outside

But then I heard, the voices of anger
Negative tones as they barked and banter
Get back here and take your seat
Who was I to make such a feat

I heard them say, you're not strong enough
I heard them say, you're not smart enough
I heard them say, you're not cool enough
I heard them say, you're not good enough

I turned around in their direction
Saw the window with my reflection
I turned and walked, that's a fact
(Band Break)
The windows been open and I'm never go'n back

Chorus:
The window
The window been open
The window been open
The window been open and I'm never go'in back.

Verse 2:
Great to feel the sunshine on my back
And have the freedom that I had lack
I for once had made the right move
And stop listening to - you're going to lose

I felt the grass pushing under my foot
And the warm soothing breeze - made me look
As I walk around this spring like treat
From dark to light this can't be beat

So I don't care now what they say
When standing in the middle of this nice day
All I know heading down this track
(Band Break)
The window been open and I'm never go'n back.

Chorus: (2x)
The window
The window been open
The window been open
The window been open and I'm never go'in back.

Verse 3:
Now look at me with friends and fans
Playing and sing with this cool band.
The widow showed what life could be
And open my mind to possibilities

I took the risk I made the gamble
Making excuses is not my handle
Left that comfortable dead end scam
Took a chance for a better plan.

I never regretted the day I left
From people who wanted me to be their pet
Tell me what to think, what to say
To control my life in every way

Never let'em tell ya, you're not strong enough
Never let'em tell ya, you're not smart enough
Never let'em tell ya, you're not cool enough
Don't ever let'em tell ya, you're not good enough

Know I still have negative detractors
I don't hear their voices, they're not a factor
I just remember when looking back
(Band Break)
The window is open and I'm never go'n back

Chorus:
The window
The window been open
The window been open
The window been open and I'm never go'in back. (repeat chorus)

Never let'em tell Don't ever let'em tell ya, you're not good enough, you're not good enough (repeat 4x)

Outro
The window The window (keep repeating)
