Only Blue

The leaves fall to the ground

Red and gold, shades of brown

They brush against the gate

In the wind, like drops of paint

But I am only blue, I am only blue

Without you, I am only blue

 

The morning strikes the grass

Like countless shards of broken glass

And splinters off the dew

Prisms pushing rainbows through

But I am only blue, I am only blue

Without you, I am only blue

 

I am only blue, just like a sea

Waves cannot break through

 

I am only blue, just like a sky

Storms cannot roll through

 

The evening slips away,

Purple stains on streaks of grey

The black edge of the night

Flickers with an orange light

But I am only blue, I am only blue

Without you, I am only blue
