I watched you watching the blue, blue skies, the deep June blue sea. You wished you could drink it, but even you my love can't shrink it, with all your passionate thirst.
So you settled for a cigarette and hated the world
And became again enraptured by the sea
Wreathed in smoke you wished you could choke on the blue waves, ringed with pink and lilac that day on the strand and suck out every hue
That angels painted with a child's paintbox
In the wintertime secrets and rain battered the window pane
All around you ghosts with long faces longed for warmer places
But you wished for rain and rain
Insulating the pain
But now I watch you watching the blue
I would gift all to you, all the blue', blue stars, blue cars, the pale blue dot wrapped in a big blue box' and call them summertime.
