Am                         G
As I sat sadly by her side
F                            G
At the window through the glass
Am                             G
She stroked a kitten in her lap
       F                             G 
And we watched the world as it fell past
Am                              G
Softly she spoke these words to me
F                               G
And with brand new eyes, open wide
Am                            G
We pressed our faces to the glass
F              G         Am (Fig A)  
As I sat sadly by her side.

Am                                       G
She said, 'Father, mother, sister, brother,
F                      G
Uncle, aunt, nephew, niece,
Am                                 G
Soldier, sailor, physician, labourer,
F                               G 
Actor, scientist, mechanic, priest,
Am                             G
Earth and moon and sun and stars
F                               G
Planets and comets with tails blazing
Am                           G
All are there forever falling
F              G     Am (Fig A)
Falling lovely and amazing.'

Am                            G
Then she smiled and turned to me
F                     G
And waited for me to reply
Am                                G
Her hair was falling down her shoulders
F              G        Am (Fig A)
As I sat sadly by her side.

Am                        G
As I sat sadly by her side
F                          F
The kitten she did gently pass
Am                            G
Over to me and again we pressed
    F                        G
Our different faces to the glass
Am                             G
'That may be very well,' I said
     F                                 G
'But watch that one falling in the street
Am                               G
See him gesture to his neighbourS
F                               G
See him trampled beneath their feet
Am                                 G
All outward motion connects to nothing
F                                           G
For each is concerned with their immediate need
Am                                     G
Witness the man reaching up from the gutter
F                                      G        Am (Fig A)
See the other one stumbling on who he can not see.

Am                                    G
With trembling hand I turned toward her
F                                G
And pushed the hair out of her eyes
Am                             G
The kitten jumped back to her lap
F              G         Am (Fig A)
As I sat sadly by her side.

Am                           G
Then she drew the curtains down
F                               G
And said, 'When will you ever learn
Am                                    G
That what happens there beyond the glass
F                          G
Is simply none of your concern?
Am                           G
God has given you but one heart
F                                           G                        
You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers
Am                                      G
And God does not care for your benevolence
F                                            G
Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others
Am                                G
Nor does he care for those who sit
F                                          G
At windows in judgement of the world He created
Am                              G
While sorrows pile up around him
F                 F          Am (Fig A)
Ugly, useless and over-inflated.

Am                             G
At which she turned her head away
F                             G
Great tears leaping from her eyes
Am                                  G
I could not wipe the smile from my face
F         G            Am (Fig B)        
As I sat sadly by her side.
