Diana Krall

From the album, The Girl In The Other Room


Narrow daylight entered my room

Shining hours were brief

Winter is over

Summer is near

Are we stronger than we believe?

I walked through halls of reputation

Among the infamous too

As the camera clings to the common thread

Beyond all vanity

Into a gaze to shoot you through

Is the kindness we count upon

Hidden in everyone?

I stepped out in a sunlit grove

Although deep down I wished it would rain

Washing away all the sadness and tears

That will never fall so heavily again

Is the kindness we count upon

Hidden in everyone?

I stood there in the salt spray air

Felt wind sweeping over my face

I ran up through the rocks to the old

Wooden cross

It’s a place where I can find some peace

Narrow daylight entered my room

Shining hours were brief

Winter is over

Summer is near

Are we stronger than we believe?
