This Blue's for You
Dan Clanton

Thirty-seven thousand feet above the ground, with cotton candy 'neath the wings,
But candy's not what's running through my mind right now, it's just the blue your memory brings.
I hear the others round me talking, laughing at their private jokes,
I see you waving in the rearview mirror still,
I guess you know this blue's for you, I guess you know this blue's for you.

City streets outside the hotel sound so loud, cars and people passing by,
Lovers whispering in the hall outside my door, thinking no one heard them sigh.
I pass the hours mostly reading, watching baseball on TV,
That's when loneliness slips softly through my room,
I guess you know this blue's for you, I guess you know this blue's for you.

(Instrumental break)
I guess it's time to make that phone call, and feel the sound of your embrace,
I amazed how close I feel to you, each time I'm in a far off place,
In every crowd I see your face.

(Instrumental break)

We touch down I'm driving straight back home to you, the freeway never seemed so long.
Headlights catch me smiling though I'm all alone, it's just the feeling gets so strong.
I tiptoe through the darkened hallway, and see you sleeping in our bed,
I guess I'll hold this blue and wake you with the dawn,
And then I'll lose this blue for you, till then I'll hold this blue for you,
I guess you know this blue's for you.
