Window
by Patty Larkin
I thought by now, by this time,
I'd be looking out the window in some finery,
Across the street, at the beat-up bar,
I'd be watching some poor devil stumble by my brand new car.
Well, I thought by now I would have it made,
Lift the shade, take a look out
But right now, all I see
Is my own face in the window
looking back at me.

I thought by now, by this time,
I'd be waiting at the window for some kind of sign.
And I would be somebody's wife
With a tiny little baby gonna pass me by in life.
I thought by now I would have it made,
Life would be nearly perfect.
But right now, all I see
I've been standing at the window
on my own two feet.

I thought by now, by this time,
I'd be turning round the corner on a moonlit night,
And it would seem like I had it all beat,
Zippin' up the leather on a cold hard street.
Well, I thought by now, things would change,
Turn the page, happy ending.
But right now, all I see,
The people on the sidewalk look a lot like me.

Never satisfied
Never satisfied
am I?

I thought by now, by this time,
I would be the keeper of my destiny,
And I would lead the best of lives,
Whatever the hell that was in my own mind's eye.
Well, I thought by now, I would have it made,
Lift the shade, take a look out.
But right now, all I see,
Is my own face in the window looking back at me,
But right now, all I see,
Is my own face in the window....

my own face in the window....

my own face in the window....
