Pane of Glass
Lyrics
Pane of glass
© 2011 Bruce Mills (SOCAN/BMI)

I see you every, single day
Standing at your window
And when you smile at me - I feel so close to you
But that shiny pane of glass - is keeping us so far apart

It's not a thousand miles
It's not a hundred years
It's not a road too long to take - or a journey too far
It's just a pane of glass that keeps us so far apart!

Chorus
Would you ever take my hand and let me show you the world
And feel the soft rain on your beautiful face -
Would ever walk with me through the old city park
And sit with me there for a while after dark

Not a thousand miles
Not a hundred years
Not a road too long to take - or a journey too far
It's just a pane of glass that keeps us so far apart!

Instrumental

Chorus
Would you ever take my hand and let me show you the world
And feel the soft rain on your beautiful face -
Would ever walk with me through the old city park
And sit with me there for a while after dark

I see you every, single day
Standing at your window
And when you smile and wave to me - my heart stands still
Someday - maybe tomorrow - you'll meet me at the corner
And somehow love will find us standing us the moonlight
I will finally touch your face - and hear you speak my name
And I'll hold you close -
And I'll hold you close -
When there's no more pane of glass

Instrumental reprise
