Watching the ships pass by on the Fjord.

Room with a view

Lyrics by Tina Dickow

I need a room with a view 
An armchair by the window 
a cup of coffee and a cigarette or two 

Watch the sky turn from hazy gray to black 
Watch my neighbours go to work 
and look exhausted and burned out when they get back 
Thinking about you 
Thank God for this beautiful view 

I recall you took me swimming 
the sea was dark and cold 
You'd been there many times before 
with many different girls, I'd been told 
But what's a man without a past 
We love him for his lies 
and then we try to break him down to make it last 
'til they come true 
Thank God for this beautiful view 

Beautiful view 
You, you, you... 
I still love you 

The dark is falling and the city fills with lights 
Cars like shining pearls on strings 
moving through the emptiness of night 
The wine is running to my head 
I'm spellbound by the moment 
can't get up, can't find the strength to go to bed 
Without you 
Thank God for this beautiful view 

Beautiful view 
You, you, you... 
I still love you 

I've been blind too blind to tell false from true 
I've been so busy running 
never stopped to think where I was running to 
But I've learned my lesson from the tears I've had to cry Sometimes it helps to take your time 
to sit alone and watch the world go by 
Cause every day it's new 
Thank God for this beautiful view 
Every day it's new 
Thank God for this beautiful view 
Thank God for this beautiful view
