  • 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 trashed my very name

    Then I looked over just in time
    To see her smiling back at me and saying everything's okay
    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 protect me from all pain
    (It's true ya know, but)

    You're the most beautiful, yeah the most beautiful thing
    'Cause anything else can't compare
    It must be the blood that's running through your blue veins
    Your blue veins

    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
