Laura veirs - Turquoise walls

When I thought that I might lose you
Oh, I trembled like a leaf
Tattered by the wind
And torn by the September storm
I tossed and turned and threw
The blankets off, oh, I could not sleep
Thinking you were keeping
Someone else's pillow warm

Oh, and the hours dragged by
And I heard that whistle call
I didn't know what to do
I just stared at the turquoise walls (turquoise walls)

The warmth, the beauty of your eyes
It crushes me to think
That you could give that love to someone else
Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde
Oh, I felt so crazy inside
Brewing on the bed
The worst version of myself


Oh, and the hours dragged by
And I heard that whistle call
I didn't know what to do
I just stared at the turquoise walls (turquoise walls)

I texted you some cryptic shit
And soon was consumed with regret
The horse on the Lurie painting came alive (turquoise walls)
Then it told me to stop worrying
"Girl, girl don't lose your head (turquoise walls)
Have you considered that maybe his phone just died?"

Oh, and the hours dragged by
And I heard that distant call
I didn't know what to do
I just stared at the turquoise walls (turquoise walls)

No, and the hours dragged by
And I heard that distant call (turquoise walls)
I didn't know what to do
I just stared at the turquoise walls
