Kind of Blue


Kind of blue, like a trance that I slip into
peace overcomes me as I think back to you


and long I'll wait, and long I cry
but short was the chance that passed me by
to say I do


to give it all up and slow it all down
to take your hand and smile, instead of frown
to dress up nice and go downtown
not to stay in bed and lie
inside, away from the morning dew


from the sun that shines on bright
and keeps us from that sleepy night
when I held you near, so tight
you still have my love in spite
that you left me in your wedding gown
without a glance back or goodbye
you gave me the chance to start anew
