Lyrics

Lady Blue

Chorus 1
Little little lady blue
I wanna talk to you
Little little lady bright
Your star didn't shine tonite

V1
You gave all your love and lost
Evil things men can dream
Searched in vain for a place to rest
For a place to rest

Chorus 2
Little little lady sigh
I know how much you tried
Little little lady blue
I wanna talk to you

V2
We were deaf dumb and blind with love
Drinking wine salted with our tears
Longing for your words my dear
For your words my dear

Chorus 3
Little little lady died
Shine in splendor and in light
Little little lady sad
Your sweet smell still in my bed

V3
On a sunless day you walked away
Drowned yourself in a stormy sea
Leaving midnight in my heart
Midnight in my heart

Bridge:
Without fear without tears
Without burning pain making you insane
Following the light and you will see
How immortal you will be
Little little lady Blue

Chorus3
Little little lady died
Shine in splendor and in light
Little little lady sad
Your sweet smell still in my bed
