BLUE LIGHT

In the blue light I want to stay
In the sunshine, for just one more day
I won’t go if you say
It doesn’t really matter
I’ll forget that I found you this way

I lie awake and think of you
and all the things I said that I would do for you
I follow you ‘round like a dog

Now I’m tongue-tied in corporate grey
With my tin toys and Western decay
If I slow down, will you say
It doesn’t really matter
I’ll forget that I found you this way

Get out of bed and I think of us
You take the train, I catch the bus to be with you
I follow you ‘round like a dog

I’m feelin’ like a big cliché

In the blue light you look surreal
Like a bloodhound I’m hot on your heels
When you crumble I hear you pray
But it doesn’t really matter
I’ll forget that I found you this way
