Steve Key: Songs/Lyrics

Without the blues

(Steve Key)
February 7, 2011
Steve Key

inspired by Aaron Nathans' Blue Song, written for FAWM 2011, www.fawm.org

The skies got 'em
The seas got 'em
Blue like me when I hit bottom
But who would I be
Without the blues

It's an old feelin'
There’s no dealin’
Again and again I see love leavin'
What can I do
Without the blues

Like the blue runnin' in my blood
It's a mood comin' from the gut
It's a cloud followin' me around
Things are looking up, but it’s still rainin’ down

The day's waitin'
But I'm hesitatin'
I should be out in the sunshine playin'
But I can't seem to move
Without the blues

Like a song in a minor key
The thrill is gone singing me to sleep
Like a voice whispering it’s true
No one really cares, so why should you

The skies got 'em
The seas got 'em
Blue like me when I hit bottom
But who would I be
Without the blues
