I sit by the window, cup warm in my hands
Outside the sky is the color of sand
I’m so tired of being stuck inside
All closed up, I wanna open wide
It’s time I left this barren ground
I’ve been here too long and it’s wearing me down
It’s time I found another road
It’s time I pulled my parachute out

Everybody talks of tragedy
The world is dying they say, Can’t you see?
But I’m looking out at the sparrow on the line
And the wind that’s blowing the back yard pines
And now the light is full, clear across the hills
Winter is coming and I got the chills
But it’s time I left this winter coat
It’s time I pulled my parachute out

Been down this road a hundred times
It just goes on for miles and miles
But I think it’s time that I moved on
What’s done is done, what’s gone is gone
I want to leave this weary world behind
Like the blackbirds sailing off across the sky
I can’t keep living with all this doubt
It’s only ever tired me out
And there’s a little girl spinning in the back yard
I want to open like that, it’s not so hard
It’s time I remembered what it’s all about
It’s time I pulled my parachute out
