A story of a love lost in the cold, grey light of morning!
Partially inspired by Tom Waits, again, partially based on real life.
Blue Electric Skies is referencing what was, a local nightspot.
Wild Is The Wind is referencing the cover version by David Bowie.
I’m feeling so in love with you
As we hold each other in the blue
Crazed lights of this cavern bar
And hoping you can heal the scars
As he sings “Wild Is The Wind”
I’m thinking ’bout the times we sinned
So until the coming light of day
We move like there’s no music playing
And I just hold on
Beneath the blue electric skies
I’m staring deep in your green eyes
Like emeralds, they seem to shine
Feel lucky that you’re only mine
Deep your eyes and how they gleam
It’s just like drowning in a dream
Wading through a gleaming pool
Never thought you’d play me for a fool
Still, I just hold on
Beneath the cold, grey morning skies
I watch as love’s light leaves your eyes
When you simply turn and walk away
Left lonely at the break of day
Never knew how very far you’d stray
Or thought you’d wish it all away
The feeling that kept me so warm
Drained out in the cold light of dawn
I’ll hold on, though all hope’s gone
See I’m still in love with you
And though it beats me black and blue
Try to hold on tightly to my dream
While it melts away like warm ice cream
