Makes You Wonder Why

"Lonely looking sky, lonely sky
     And being lonely


Makes you wonder why
    Lonely looking sky


Lonely looking night, 
     lonely night


And bein' lonely
     never made it right


Sleep, we sleep


For we may dream
     while we may dream


For we may wake
     one more day


Glory looking day, 
     glory day


And all its glory told a simple way
     Behold it if you may


Glory looking day on


Lonely looking sky"


The Grammy award winning soundtrack album to the 1973 movie Jonathan Livingston Seagull has long been one of my favorites. Two of the songs are especially meaningful, Be and Lonely Looking Sky. Some of the latter's lyrics accompany a few of my many, many sky photos. 


Makes you wonder why; you really shouldn't.
