KILLING THE BLUES


leaves were falling just like embers
in colors red and gold • they set us on fire
burning just like a moonbeam in our eyes
somebody said they saw me swinging the world by the tail
bouncing over a white cloud • killing the blues

now I'm guilty of something
I hope you never do because there is nothing
any sadder than losing yourself in love
somebody said they saw me swinging the world by the tail
bouncing over a white cloud • killing the blues

and then you ask me just to leave you
to set out on my own and get what I need to
you want me to find what I've already had
somebody said they saw me swinging the world by the tail
bouncing over a white cloud • killing the blues
