Make the Blues Sound Pretty

You've got some thinking to do

Will you stay or go

Your bucket of wishes

Is starting to overflow

Your dreams stand tall

Flash like a neon sign

Choices of today

Hang on a fragile line 

See, I have it too

Sometimes yellow

Sometimes blue 

I know how the open road

May seem paved with fear

Honey those pretty comforts of yours  

Are the monsters here

Your eyes look north

While your heart heads south

You've walked this terrain before

Chasing the shadows around 

See, I have it too

Sometimes yellow

Sometimes blue 

There's a gold noose

It hangs from a diamond sky

I know it all a little too well

Gold noose hangs from a diamond sky

I know you know it too

But what are we to do

See how it shimmers 

See, I have it too

Sometimes yellow

Sometimes blue 

 

3 am with a pen by my bedside

Try to catch emotions that run and hide

Take a deep breath in, out with a sigh

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

 

It's how I choose to spend my days and nights

It's how I choose the best words to describe

How it all changes in a moment's time

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

I need time with my heart

Get down to the nitty-gritty

Do you know the shape I'm in?

Do you believe me?

Oh there I go tryin' make the blues sound pretty

There I go tryin' make the blues sound pretty

 

I'm sorry I often go astray

But I always return with something more to say

Unsure if it's wise or foolish, but anyway

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

There I go tryin' to make the blues sound pretty

Moving to Spain

She's too bored to celebrate

He arrives a little too late

Is the party here anymore

I feel the need to escape

 

I'm going to Thailand

I'm moving to Spain

Gonna find that no-name highway

Gonna let it own me 'til I disappear

 

Don't know my destination

Just know I've got to go

Life requires exploration

Gonna walk right out the door

 

I'm going to Thailand

I'm moving to Spain

Gonna find that no-name highway

Gonna let it own me 'til I reappear

 

I'm going to Thailand

I'm moving to Spain

Gonna find that no-name highway

Gonna let it own me 'til I disappear
