Song Description

Somebody calls her. She talks low on the phone. She leaves. Takes her sweet time coming home. He's no fool, but he loves her so much that he's hoping against hope that she will stop cheating and just be true to him alone.

Story Behind the Song

No back story. Just pure craft.

Lyrics

VERSE
You're like the sunshine, baby, warm and welcome
But I seldom get the chance to be that for you
I know you want me to be your sunshine, too
I just can't get around what you sometimes do
The things you do, now and then, make me believe
That I'm not the only one keeping your company

CHORUS
(Yeah) There's a certain shade of blue that covers me up
Keeps me in the dark but still lovin' you
There's a certain shade of blue that's more than enough
To leave me sad, but, baby, I don't wanta be through
I just want out from under this certain shade of blue

VERSE
When you talk so quietly on your phone
Then leave out alone, take your sweet time comin' home
The fear I have cuts clean to the bone
If the truth be known, I'm sinkin' like a stone
The things you do, now and then, make me believe
That I'm not the only one keeping your company

BRIDGE
Let's bring everything out into the light
Shine it bright on what we are
And if it don't shine like a shinin' star
Then let it pass full into the night

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yeah, baby, I just need out from under this certain shade of blue
