Look How Far
On this rooftop where we're sitting In the rays of the setting sun Glasses of wine on a crate between us Catch the light -- seem to glow from within And there's a laugh Hanging in the air And there's no Desperation anywhere So many miles, so many doors Some need patience, some need force All fall open in their own due course To allow us this time And you're limned In light, golden and thin Looks to me Like you're lit up from within And look how far the light came Look how far the light came Look how far the light came To paint you This way And I picture us in this light Friendship a fine silver web Stretched across golden smoky haze And this is simple And this is grace And this light Is a guest from far away Passing through The last whisper of day And look how far the light came Look how far the light came Look how far the light came To paint you This way
