Old 97's - Color of a lonely heart is blue

Well the sun's done gone
No hand me no life
Moon in the metal
Will be rolling all night
Scorpio's up bleeding all day
To pasture
And the hours behind your roll
Is to few
Miles between can't begin to undo
Feeling that you will never see
Another like her

And the lonesome ways
And the young and foolish days
And the kid who made the man
Who'll leave you

With the sink of a ship
I'm going to dip into that hue
Till I color me
Like I color you

The color of a lonely heart
And the color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue


Stars go off like flashpot dots
The spark under candle powers stopped
Lift up your light
'Cause you'll never see a night that's blacker

And the weight of it all
Get's heavier still
Time as he crawls
Will goes slower until
Scorpio's up a little on down to Cancer

And the lonesome ways
And the young and foolish days
And the kid who made the man
Who'll leave you

With the sink of a ship
I'm going to dip into that hue
Till I color me
Like I color you

The color of a lonely heart
And the color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue
Color of a lonely heart
Is blue
