Modern Blue

Album: The River & the Thread (2014)
  • I went to Barcelona on the midnight train
    I walked the streets of Paris in the pouring rain
    I flew across and island in the Northern Sea
    And I ended up in Memphis, Tennessee

    [Chorus]
    I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
    It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue

    Everybody round here runs too fast
    And it feels so good but it's never gonna last
    Everything I have for us what I knew
    But I don't have nothing if I don't have you

    I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
    It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue

    Will you still be there when I round the curve?
    Will you hold my hand when I lose my nerve?
    Oh I went to Barcelona and my mind got changed
    So I'm heading back to Memphis on the midnight train

    I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
    It's a big wide world
    I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
    I keep my head down, I keep my eyes on you
    It's a big wide world with a million shades of modern blue Writer/s: JOHN LEVENTHAL, ROSANNE CASH
