Words and Music by Andrew L. Jackson

lyrics

Lyrics:

Like a cat looking out of a window
I was focused on the world outside
Like a cat looking out of a window
I was focused on the world outside

I could not see myself
I could not see myself

I was a vacant lot
A mirror of sights unseen
I tended to hesitate
Even when I’d sleep to dream, but...

I could not see myself
I could not see myself

A world inside me waited
To be discovered one day
As the hallway mirror showed
A man that’s growing gray
Tried to find the perfect words
They still elude me today
Like a cat looking out of a window
Existence feels that way

A thought still lingers
Winding its way through the years
Down to this day it comes
It’s hidden then disappears ... and...

I could not see myself
I could not see myself
I could not see myself
I could not see myself

I was a mystery to me...
I was a mystery to me...
(I could not see)
