Blue Skies Over Bad Lands

This song is by Matthew Good and appears on the album White Light Rock & Roll Review (2004) and on the live album Live at Massey Hall (2008).

What if you woke up in the middle of the night
And in your bare feed you walked outside
And realized that you were awake, that you could fly
Out over the world
Out over the world

To places that you've only heard of
See faces that you were sold as murderers
But just like you they're only lonely boys and girls
Like all over the world
All over the world

What if you could lift them up
What if you could make it so that times weren't tough
So every morning when the world woke up
There'd only be weather on the news
Only weather on the news
Only weather on the news
Only weather on the news

And what if you were back in bed
With one of them floating over your head
What do you say to your enemies
When you don't know what it is
That could have been between ya
That could have been between ya all
That could have been between ya
that could have been between ya all
That could have been between ya

There ain't no blue skies over bad lands
Even if it ain't raining in the mornings
But you don't need to fly to understand it
Just understand understanding
Just understand understanding
