Shades Of Cool

Album: Ultraviolence (2014)
Charted: 79
  • My baby lives in shades of blue
    Blue eyes and jazz and attitude
    He lives in California too
    He drives a Chevy Malibu

    And when he calls
    He calls for me, not for you
    He lives for love, he loves his drugs
    He loves his baby too

    But I can't fix him, can't make him better
    And I can't do nothing about his strange weather

    But you are invincible
    I can't break through your world
    'Cause you live in shades of cool
    Your heart is unbreakable

    My baby lives in shades of cool
    Blue heart and hands and aptitude
    He lives for love, for women, too
    I'm one of many, one is blue

    And when he calls
    He calls for me, not for you
    He prays for love, he prays for peace
    And maybe someone new

    But I can't help him, can't make him better
    And I can't do nothing about his strange weather

    'Cause you are invincible
    I can't break through your world
    'Cause you live in shades of cool
    Your heart is unbreakable

    You are invincible
    I can't break through your world
    'Cause you live in shades of cool
    Your heart is unbreakable
