Mr Blue


winter sounds the crying

like an old man slowly dying

and the only sound, the wind that fills the trees

even colder comes the moon

and though it never seems too soon

a sudden stillness as the rainfall starts to freeze


i'm mr blue

i'm here to stay with you

and no matter what you do

when you're lonely - i'll be lonely too


a young girl, she is shaded

bears the scars that never faded

of the baby that was born on christmas day

while the heavens sing their song

a child's life is never long

'cos the food supplies will only last a day

(chorus repeat)

patriot emotion, is the cause of the commotion

after all there's really no-one here to blame

soldiers taking orders, 'cos we must defend the borders

of our nation (and the other side's the same)

(chorus repeat)

i'll come to you at night

when all the world is sleeping tight

and lie beside you, till the early morning dew

you can't hear me, you can't see

but you can feel me when you read

the folded letter she left addressed to you

(chorus repeat)
