Blue Veins

Album: Broken Boy Soldier (2006)
  • When I was surrounded by the world
    You were the only one who came
    And you were the only one astounded
    Which kept me grounded
    As the other girls thrashed my very name

    Then I looked over
    Just in time to see her smiling back at me
    And saying everything's OK
    As long as you're inside my blue veins
    Your blue veins

    Yeah and the feeling that you gave me
    No matter what I do or where I go
    It always will remain
    And those who would enslave me to get to me must get past you and will have no luck
    'Cause you'll protect me from all pain

    The most beautiful, yeah the most beautiful thing cause anything else can't compare
    Must be the blood that's running through your blue veins
    Your blue veins

    [Strange part in reverse]

    Your blue veins

    And I know you won't deceive me
    Like the rest and there's nothing you need to explain
    You always were the first one to believe me
    When I said to you girl
    I think it's gonna rain
    But I could be wrong

    Yeah but all of these things
    All these things
    They're all truly nice but ain't nothing
    Ain't nothing compared to the love that's running through your little blue veins
