16 Shades of Blue

Album: Unrepentant Geraldines (2014)
  • Are you telling me it's over disintegrating lost and there's nothing I can do
    Before you drop another verbal bomb, can I arm myself
    With Cezanne's 16 shades of blue

    As my heart is slowly ripping into pieces
    Disconnecting from the circuits of my mind
    You'll get over it you say in time
    In time?
    If the clocks are black absorbing everything but
    A remembering how we made it that
    Clocks are black

    You say get over it if 50 is the new black,
    hooray this could be your lucky day
    But my cables they are surging almost
    overloading as you disengage

    Could your heart be slowly ripping into pieces
    Disconnecting from the circuits of your mind
    We'll get over it you say in time
    In time?
    If the clocks are black absorbing everything but
    A remembering how we made it that
    Clocks are black

    That's it you're done.
    You've screwed up your life
    Before it's begun
    There are those who say
    I am now too old to play

    See over there at 33 she fears she'll lose her job
    Because they hear the ticking of her clock
    At only 15 I said 15, they say her future's bleak
    She should have started this at 3

    As her heart is slowly ripping into pieces
    Disconnecting from the circuits of her mind
    She'll get over it you say in time
    In time? Stop Father Time
    If the clocks are black absorbing everything but
    A remembering how we made it that
    How our clocks are black

    Before you drop another verbal bomb
    Can I arm myself
    With Cezanne's 16 shades of blue Writer/s: MYRA ELLEN TORI AMOS
