 Skyline

(Josh Reifert – Copyright 2011)

It’s okay when you’re on your own to let the silence ring your head like a big trombone.

You’ll clinch your fists and climb the walls. The guilt will eat you inside out like a starving dog.

(Chorus)

So hold steadfast through the hard times and they will bring forth a good life.

Keep your eyes on the skyline and say your prayers in the meantime.

Well them train tracks rock when them train wheels roll,

and life flies by you while you watch the world turn slow.

So while you wait keep watchful eye and listen for those trumpets sounding rain or shine.

(Chorus)

And hold steadfast through the hard times and they will bring forth a good life.

Keep your eyes on the skyline and say your prayers in the meantime.

Just hold steadfast through the hard times and they will bring forth a good life.

Keep your eyes on the skyline and say your prayers in the meantime,

say your prayers in the meantime,

And keep your eyes on the skyline.
