Heavenly Blues

Album: Hurry Sundown (1977)
  • Morning brings the sunlight
    Rising in my heart
    It's only us together on the phone
    Through the magic line I find
    It's only us apart
    Never hurts to know you're not alone

    But if you must know the reason
    Heavenly skies of blue
    Why it breaks my heart to say goodbye
    It's only that I love you
    You know I always will
    You and your heavenly blues

    Racing through the timeless days
    I am so alone
    Laughter in my dreams stayed for a while
    When I wake to find you gone
    I'm never far from home
    Never too far gone to feel your smile

    But if you must know the reason
    Heavenly skies of blue
    Why it breaks my heart to say goodbye
    It's only that I love you
    You know I always will
    You and your heavenly blues

    You and your heavenly blues

    Above the captured sorrow
    Beyond tomorrow's blues
    Hear the caged bird sing her lonely song
    She's singing loud for you and me
    And all the world to see
    Her tender strength remains for every song

    But if you must know the reason
    Heavenly skies of blue
    Why it breaks my heart to say goodbye
    It's only that I love you
    You know I always will
    You and your heavenly blues

    You and your heavenly
    You and your heavenly
    You and your heavenly blues
