The Lyrics


Youtube version
Sighs from the boxed in, which I cannot extend,
Journals I've written, that was only pretend.
Duty I've never missed, can't say I know more.
Just what is the truth? I couldn't say anymore.
My mood is blue, yes it is blue, oh and how it's blue.

Looking at people, some just demand,
Demands just tell me what they cannot defend,
Why are they waiting? For just some final hand?
Just what I'm giving them, they will get in the end.

My mood is blue, yes it is blue,
Oh and how it's blue, yes it's truly blue.

- flutes -

Lights they are hitting, just where I have been penned.
It is unwritten, "you cannot have a friend."
Off duty is my sole wish,let me go and explore.
Just what the world does,I don't want to ignore.

I won't be blue, no I'm not blue,
Yes, I am so blue, no I'm not too blue.
But I'll be blue, no I'm not blue,
My mood depends on me, it won't be you. 10

- long instrumental -

My Lament

Deep sleep does cover the gloom
See lights played in every room
Waking me up, I look on and resent
It was useless the hostility spent.

Old-fashioned thinkers stressed up this one
And wonders why lonely, why all shun.
Will moth turn to butterfly when done?
Keep fist tight and it will surely run.

The cold hearted ones rule by night,
Removed the colors from all sights.
All is black or all is white.
We decide what is right,
They can keep their illusion.

CHRISTIE MARIE M: You're not old enough to remember that song! lol ("Poetry in Motion").

Adagio: Welcome back! Indeed, a lyrically-beautiful description of depression. Hope it's not true, or, if so, your return signals the remission/end. Artistry here. 555+++, and sorry you missed, or chose not to read, TT's plug for you. (one open, one obscured in a pun)

TT...where, where, where? And thanks for the plug, which I want to read and my parody. (I actually came back 3 songs ago, but then took another brief vacation from the site. Guess I've been busy, but I always wanted to get back here! :)
