Shades Of Blue
(Words & Music by Keith Brown)
Now won’t you see what you’ve done to me?
You set me free, when I don’t want to be,
Through all the nights I spent with you,
And all the things that we’ve been through
You’ve gone and found somebody new,
And I’m standing here with my heart on the floor
While you make tracks, baby, for the door.
Now won’t you see what you’ve done to me?
You let me down, now baby, you’re acting so carefree,
And after all I’ve done for you,
You say you want to start anew,
And leave me here in shades of blue,
Well, I’m standing here and it’s my love on the line
While you stand there acting like everything is just fine,
As though the Heavens have aligned,
But you don’t pay me any mind,
It leaves my feelings undefined.
I gave you all that I had, you gave me all that I need,
I gave you all of my love, you gave the sign to proceed,
You made me all that a man could be,
I wiped your tears and I set you free,
Two kindred spirits, the wild wild nights,
Two burning hearts on a midnight flight.
And now we’re running out of time,
Now won’t you see what you’ve done to me?
You broke my meaning, lady, now it’s a mystery,
Been running hard but have no clue,
One day we’re on, the next we’re through,
Forever dressed in shades of blue,
And I’m standing here with my pride on the line,
And my heart, it breaks as the lady’s leaving me behind.
Well,  out of sight, now out of mind,
Looks like the boy's been lovin’ blind,
You took my love over the line.
