stained glass lyrics – bruce cockburn

small windows
looking outward
show me a sequined sky
rubies shine in my gl*ss of wine

dusk breezes
on oiled water
paint a pointillist facade
it’s ceaselessly shifting world —

like today i’m far away
i see your face behind each time-blurred pane

strings vibrate
music leaps out
in a shimmering intrigue
words unsaid whirl away like dust

from the sidewalk-sweeper’s broom
across a fold in sp*ce you touch my hand

/ bruce cockburn lyrics
