for this day

Published on September 10 2006

In the calling out to one another of the lovers up and down the strand In the sound of the waves and the cries of the seagulls circling the sand In the fragments of the songs carried down the wind from some radio In the murmuring of the city in the distance ominous and low I hear the sound of the world where we played And the far too simple beauty of the promises we made If you ever need holding call my name, I'll be there If you ever need holding, no holding back, I'll see you through Sky blue and black Where the touch of the lover ends and the soul of the friend begins Theres a need to be separate and a need to be one And a struggle neither wins Where you gave me the world I was in and a place I could make a stand I could never see how you doubted me when I let go of your hand Yeah, and I was much younger then And I must have thought that I would know If things were going to end And the heavens were rolling like a wheel on a track And our sky was unfolding and it'll never fold back Sky blue and black And I'd have fought the world for you if I thought that you wanted me to Or put aside what was true or untrue if I'd known thats what you needed What you needed me to do But the moment has passed by me now To have put away my pride And just come through for you somehow You're the color of the sky reflected in each store-front window pane Youre the whispering and the sighing of my tires in the rain Youre the hidden cost and the thing thats lost in everything I do Yeah and Ill never stop looking for you In the sunlight and the shadows and the faces on the avenue Thats the way love is Sky blue and black --Jackson Browne
