lyrics

Baby Blue

Upon the wind, winds the voices of the boys she’s loved
A whispered song that weaves it’s way into her heart
If she listens close, surely she will recognise
The one that stands before her in the dark

She thinks of home while he is taking off her party dress
She thinks of high school friends, of lovers sweet and kind
Well it’s a long road between home and this hotel room
Between a tv tower and somewhere left behind

Oh baby blue, why do you cry?
Baby blue, why do you cry along?
In the moonlight all the voices sound the same
Now he’s gone

From the window she can see the fog come creepin
Risin up from it’s river grave below
Like a bride veiled white on her wedding day
The cities lights are veiled underneath white snow

What’s a woman to the ways of an ugly world?
What’s a man if not to deal out death and doubt?
Well shethinks it as she pours herself a strong one
She turns away; another one takes the easy way out

Oh baby blue, why do you cry?
Baby blue, why do you cry along?
In the moonlight all the shadows look the same
Now he’s gone

Upon the wind winds the voice of the man she loved
A whispered song that weaves its way into her heart
Well she’s listenin close
And she can recognise
The ghot that stands before her
In the dark

Oh baby blue, why do you cry?
Baby blue, why do you cry along?
In the moonlight all the shadows look the same
Now he’s gone
Now he’s gone
Now he’s gone
