Heavenly Blues

Album: Hurry Sundown (1977)
  • Mornin' brings the sunlight Risin' 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
    Chorus
    But if you must know the reason
    Heavenly skies are blue
    And 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
    2nd verse
    Racing through the timeless days Alive and so alone
    The laughter in my dreams Fade for a while
    And when I wake to find you're gone I'm never far from home
    And never too far gone to feel your smile
    Chorus
    3rd verse
    Above the captured sorrow Beyond tomorrow's blues
    You 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
    Chorus
    You and your heavenly
    You and your heavenly
    You and your heavenly blues Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
