Lyrics

SAPPHIRE SKIES
Words and Music by John Cannon
 
 
On a sunny afternoon, just look up to the sky
Gold dust sprinkles through the clouds
As tears fall from your eye.
 
Look inside the teardrop, that’s fallen on the ground
Landing on a fallen leaf, with flowers all around
What do you see?
 
Sapphire Skies and the moon is shining in the daytime.
A young girl sighs, as her sweet lips tenderly touch your hand
Nobody lies, ‘cause there’s nothing really for them to hide.
 
Now think of something happy and you’ll begin to fly
Through a land of rainbows where no one ever cries
 
Look into the rainbow's end, you'll find a pot of love
and a sea or mirrors, reflecting things above
What do you see
Sapphire Skies and the moon is shining in the daytime.
A young girl sighs, as her sweet lips tenderly touch your hand
Nobody lies, ‘cause there’s nothing really for them to hide.
