The Blue of Distance

I stand where the light can hit me, 
Where the light can lift me up - 
Because I know that when the night comes
With its deepest, darkest, lonesome blue-
I'll think of you...

...In my old bandana. 
You wore it all the time.
I left it in your shaking hands
When I left our love behind.
It was blue, 
Blue as time.

I loved you more than I have ever loved a home.
No, it really wasn't you, 
I just have to walk alone.
The blue of distance
Is calling me on. 
It's calling me on. 

So, will you stand where the light can hit you?
Where the light can lift you up?
So I know that when the night comes
With its deepest, darkest, lonesome blue- 
You'll be seeing it too. 

It was the blue of distance
That carried me on. 
Carried me on.
