Gabriel, Peter - Sky Blue Lyrics

lost my time lost my place in
sky blue
those two blue eyes light your face in
sky blue
i know how to fly, i know how to drown in
sky blue

warm wind blowing over the earth
sky blue
i sing through the land, the land sings through me
sky blue
reaching into the deepest shade of
sky blue

sky blue
so tired of all this travelling
so many miles away from home
i keep moving to be stable
free to wander, free to roam

train pulled out said my goodbyes
sky blue
back on the road alone with the sky
sky blue
there's a presence here no one denies
sky blue

sky blue

sky blue
so tired of all this travelling
so many miles away from home
i keep moving to be stable
free to wander, free to roam

i can hear the same voice calling
crying out, from my heart
and that cry, what a cry
what a cry, it's going to be
if i can stop to let it out, oh

  2. marco morales

    Una se sus mejores canciones!!!

  3. RSSpeacemaker

    Here I am in 2020 wondering if we can ever return to this level of soul in music.

  4. Graham Webster

    Like a true professional and a true gentleman, Peter Gabriel leaves the stage and lets the Blind Boys of Alabama shine! Respect!

  5. Dennis Goebel

    Tony Levin is brilliant on this song

  6. jeff bauer

    Peter truly IS the 'Watcher of the skies'.

  7. Springboard 19

    I love how Peter Gabriel's voice never changes, never wavers. Time doesn't affect it, and it makes no difference if he's live or in studio. It's pristine.

  8. The Nonsense Buffer


  9. Jim Hood

    The power is viceral. Beautiful.

  10. Biglover29

    Lordy, how have I not heard this song before?!

  11. Robert Kallfelz

    The blind boys on tour with Gabriel?

  12. Tony Cultreri

    Lost my time 
    I lost my place in
    Sky blue
    Those two blue eyes light your face in
    Sky blue
    I know how to fly, I know how to drown in
    Sky blue
    Warm wind blowing over the earth
    Sky blue
    I sing through the land, the land sings through me
    Sky blue
    Reaching into the deepest shade of
    Sky blue
    Sky blue
    So tired of all this traveling
    So many miles away from home
    I keep moving to be stable
    Free to wander, free to roam
    Train pulled out, said my goodbyes
    Sky blue
    Back on the road, alone with the sky
    Sky blue
    There's a presence here no one denies
    Sky blue
    Sky blue
    So tired of all this traveling
    So many miles away from home
    I keep moving to be stable
    Free to wander, free to roam
    And I can hear the same voice calling
    Crying out, from my heart
    And the cry, what a cry
    What a cry it's going to be
    If I can stop to let it out

  13. RodneyLee

    Every once in a while he nails it with a great song.

  14. Brian Horner

    So incredibly hip. Chills. Despite his fame, PG is still one of the most under-rated composer/performers of all time.

  15. nicolas sabatier

    a beautiful song.

  16. Dissily Mordentroge

    Half of the chorus members are singing OUT OF TUNE!


    Not meaning it as an accusation of any kind, you might actually be tone deaf. They are perfectly in tune, although they sing different pieces, with different pitches.

  17. Kristine McCowan

    Musical genius indeed !!!

    Jorge Washington Trejo

    Genia, Kristine. Buen oído para la música. Genia.Saludos desde Montevideo,URUGUAY

  20. Hans Moelders

    I wonder on how many more adventures the BLIND BOYS OF Alabama will go?!

  21. Hans Moelders

    The movie, "A rabbit proof fence", was wonderful too!

  22. Bruno Muller

    Si dieux existe il est dans la musique!

  23. Bruno Muller

    Du génie magnifique ça prend aux tripes merci Peter merci aux musiciens et choristes

  24. Jason Arthurs

    This song always reminds me of my Father-in-law. Not a song he would have liked but it played in the car as I brought my young Daughters home after saying (what they were unaware) was their last goodbye before he died of cancer a few days later. Always breaks my heart to hear it...

  25. ThisSheetB4RealYo

    Incredible I got to see this tour. Thank you for posting. So epic, such great memories coming back

    Superb. I was fortunate to have gone to this show at the United Center in Chicago. Went with a girl named Cassy. Both truly spectacular. I'll remember both forever, I'm sure.

    I also remember the crowd especialy loved the hell out of bassist Tony Levin.

  52. inflames2112

    amazing. heard it first on the film "rabbit proof fence". then lost it. found it again on the album "up". wow! peter has such a great respect for indigenous people. africans / aboriginal - australian indigenous, etc. RESPECT THE ORIGINAL PEOPLES - ALWAYS - KNOW YOUR PLACE AND HERSTORY/HISTORY. <3

    Debbie Sheegog

    perfect and beautiful comment, for a beautiful song and man, of beautiful land - "Rabbit Proof Fence,"? must find it...thanks


    How do you get that from this song? There are many musicians and composers who play music from different cultures. Should listen to the song RHYMIN' MAN. The song contains a half dozen different cultures along with musical entities, like mobsters and clowns. So the composer really likes indigenous people too.

  79. ciro lucca

    very nice,thanks!

  80. jim maguire

    superb track. Chilled . Need some bud to complete the natural effect and fall asleep to this sound
