Blue Charlotte

Album: Plain Spoken (2014)
  • Exhausted by too many tears
    Trouble is everywhere
    Hold you in my arms
    Blue Charlotte

    While your eyes gaze up at me
    I'm not the man I used to be
    You still own my heart
    Blue Charlotte

    Look away, look away
    They're so precious, these last few days
    Look away, look away
    We watch as it comes to an end
    Blue Charlotte

    And if you pass tonight in your sleep
    You will still have me to weep
    I'm all that remains here
    Blue Charlotte

    Yellow letters from your youth
    All of them seeking truth
    The poems written from me to you
    Blue Charlotte

    Look away, look away
    They're so precious, these last few days
    Look away, please look away
    We watch all that screams
    Blue Charlotte

    Look away, look away
    We watch as autumn comes to an end
    Blue Charlotte

    It's a long, long way from here
    Our reflection in the mirror
    Now you've closed your eyes
    Blue Charlotte

    It's a slow walk to the grave
    Here we are together today
    You've been my whole life
    Blue Charlotte

    Look away, look away
    They're so precious, these last few days
    Look away, look away
    We watch as something new begins
