Track Name: Waltz in Blue
Waltz in Blue

Blue roses on the bed
I can’t see her anymore
Every story has its hero
This one’s broken fifty laws

Blue petals on the pillow
Bullets in the drawer
Detectives on the driveway
Newsmen at the door

Blue ribbons on the bureau
My hands feel raw
I was the last thing
That she ever saw

Blue ghosts in the attic
Saying one last goodbye
A slow blue waltz
Across a cold, blue sky
