Am I Blue?

Thump the Clouds have come to mind this morning as I met up with AndyM and a bunch of other folk earlier this week, so for your Valentine's present you can have the lyrics to an eight bar blues of ours from back in the day. It's all very sad, but then it is the blues after all and the last word links to a deliriously romantic story. Cheer up, it might never happen.

I came to the party
I saw you again
It's hard to believe this
But it took me way back when
To when I first met you
The scene of the crime
To once upon a time

Sucking white wine up
From a paper cup
To kid myself that there was
No need for a cover up
I asked you a question
You told me a lie
You didn't see me cry

I woke up on Sunday
I wrote down this song
And started to think that
I had been away too long
I thought of that singer
Of love and of life lived in vain
And headed for the train.
