Section 2: Blue

Blue was the color of his true love’s eyes

Which he once compared to a summer’s sky

In the days when they were young

And their love had just begun.

Blue was the color of the dress she wore

Which she said she had bought at a second hand store

On the afternoon that he got down on one knee

And she blushed and kissed him before she agreed.

Blue was the color of the quilt on the bed

He took off and folded on the day that they wed.

He waited for her under the sheets

And that first time he still remembered as sweet.

Blue was the color of that old guitar

The one that she claimed would make him a star.

The first thing he did was to write her a song.

That was a time when their love was strong.

Blue is the color of sun kissed skies

Blue is the color of my lover’s eyes

Blue is the color of hurt and pain

Blue is this song’s only refrain

Blue may be happy and sweet

But for me the line to repeat

Blue is the color of hurt and pain

Blue is this song’s only refrain

Blue was the color of the bruise on her hand

The day that she punched that little night stand-

So angry that he couldn’t seem to share

Thinking silence meant he didn’t care.

Blue was the color of the suitcase she packed

Before she told him that she wasn’t coming back.

She said he had grown so cold.

That was the time when their love was old.

Blue was the color of the ink when he signed

His marriage away on the signature line.

He knew his heart would mend.

It was time for the love to end.
