THE BLUES

Your dark clouds came rolling in
On the brightest day to my memory
Flushed away the bluest sky
I may have ever seen
May have ever seen
The bluest sky I may’ve ever seen

I slipped in the water brought by your storm
But I got back up and started moving on
And then your clouds soon rolled away
The exact same moment’s when my own rain came

I can stand the pain in the pouring rain
I can rub some dirt in my scars
And you can take my legs, you can take my eyes
But please, baby, don’t break my heart

Your clouds are gone but still in sight
Their winds broke down all four of my walls
They washed away everything we’d made
And you exposed me to one and all
To one and all
You exposed me to one and all

You can take everything I stand for
Take all my sights and views
You can take back everything you’ve ever given me
Without giving me the blues

I can stand the pain in the pouring rain
I can rub some dirt in my scars
And you can take my legs, you can take my eyes
But please, baby, don’t break my heart

No, don’t be giving me the blues
There’s never a better time for bad news
Win or lose, I’m yours to choose
Just don’t be giving me the blues

You can take everything I stand for
Take all my sights and views
You can take back everything you’ve ever given me
Without giving me the blues
