Subject: Lyr/Tune Req: Look out your window...
From: wysiwyg
Date: 15 Mar 07 - 09:17 AM

This is a request for a friend. He believes he heard it on the radio by a male singer. May be old or newer southern gospel in style, uptempo and maybe 3/4. Some phrases he remembers:


Look out your window, see what you can see

Silence is broken by opening the door

All the wonders of life you've never seen before



This is for a determinedly cheerful elderly man whose wife is not doing well in a battle with lymphoma and who is anticipating his own surgery in a few weeks. The really pretty snowy morning here reminded him of the song. Can y'all help me find a clip, tune, and/or full lyric?

Thanks,

~Susan

Subject: Lyr Add: TIE ME AT THE CROSSROADS (Bruce Cockburn)
From: wysiwyg

I doubt this is it.

~S~

=====================

Tie Me At The Crossroads
by Bruce Cockburn

CHORUS:
Tie me at the crossroads when I die
Hang me in the wind 'til I get good and dry
And the kids that pass can scratch their heads
And say "who was that guy?"
Tie me at the crossroads when I die

Looking outward see what you can see
By the time you look at something it's already history
As the echoes of our passing fade, all there is to say
Is, "you know I loved you all in my particular way"

(Chorus)

It's more blessed to give than it is to receive
Except when it comes to free advice I believe
Here I go anyway, back seat driving tonight
Move fast, stay cool, keep your eye on the front sight

(Chorus

I guess am too late, but its better late than never. This the full lyrics heard it @ Mass one Sunday and loved it soo much. Have been searching for the audio till now but no success.


LOOK OUT YOUR WINDOW
(Ray Repp)

Look out your window
See what you can see
Silence is broken
By opening your door
Look out your window
See if you can see
All the wonders of life
You've never seen before

Spend just a moment
to look out your window,
the glass is as clear
as you want it to be
Life dawns a newness
to all who are willing
to open much more
than their eyes when they see

Look out your window
See what you can see
Silence is broken
By opening your door
Look out your window
See if you can see
All the wonders of life
You've never seen before

Here are complete lyrics from the Ray Repp recording

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTfW-aM43m0


LOOK OUT YOUR WINDOW
(Ray Repp)

CHORUS
Look out your window
See what you can see
Silence is broken
By opening your door
Look out your window
See if you can see
All the wonders of life
You've never seen before

1st verse:
Spend just a moment to look out your window,
the glass is as clear as you want it to be
Life dawns a newness to all who are willing
To open much more than their eyes when they see

2nd verse:
Morning brings laughter to people of sorrow
And sorrow brings laughter to people aware
Life has awakened in shades of new meaning
For those who are searching and bother to care

3rd verse
Blossoms of color bloom outside your window
Colors of black, white and yellow and red
Can you imagine a world without color
Yet sometimes we live as though most shades were dead.
