Sky Is Blue
Sky Is Blue
Ain't no closing time here
but the bar's cleared out sit alone with my drink
all by myself
The barmaid took a shine
but she just needs the tips
lines em all up wipes the salt from my lips

this towns just as lonely
as it was for you
the nights just as long
as the sky is blue

might go back to work
when the checks run out
but quiet desperation ain't what life's about
we want things that shine
to cover what don't
and a love that blinds but you see now it won't

We were so far gone
to turn things around
and i know i lost my cool when that **** went down
I know i'll never let go of this hurt
till they lay me down in my last clean shirt
