looking out at the orient

                               ©  words and music :   garnett betts

she’s a painter of so many minds

holding on to the many times

and looking out at the orient

deep into the indigo

down into the heart you know

she’s looking at the world she knows

and the orient

chorus :

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the setting sun

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the orient

jazz music in the studio

looking after the leo

who’s living between to.* and the orient

down into the soul she’ll go

painting “Buddha Sleeping on the Snow”*

and looking at the world she knows

and the orient

chorus :

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the setting sun

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the orient

bridge :

and you wonder what

is she waiting for

standing here

at the edge of the western world

and you ask yourself

what moves her here

way down

at the edge of the western world

well she’s paging through jazz memories

and it’s hard when they come to the coast

physically

chorus :

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the setting sun

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the orient

she’s a painter of so many minds

holding on to the many times

and looking out at the orient

deep into the indigo

down into the heart you know

she’s looking at the world she knows

and the orient

chorus :

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    looking out at the setting sun

    see her waiting at the edge of the western world

    she’s looking out at the orient  

                                     looking out at the orient
