Shanghai Sky Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

Strange, how the world got so small
I turned around and there was nowhere left to go

So sad, the dream always dies
Each new arrival closes places in my mind

But I can dream until I go
Of smells that I don't recognize

And by the river in Shanghai
The colour of the sky is something I've never seen

After the summer rain children smile
Curious and kind and the world is big again
