MORNING AFTER BLUE

words and music by Erik J. Matthews

I'M THINKING 'BOUT A SINGULAR, SOLITARY DAY

WITH ROOM TO BREATHE HE SHAKES ANOTHER HAND

AND SOUNDS JUST LIKE A DORIAN GHOSTING INTO GRAY

TONIGHT HE'LL BE YOUR LOVELY, LONELY MAN


BUT THERE LIES THE DANGER

LOSING SELF CONTROL

FILLING EMPTY HOURS

UNTIL HE GOES


YOU WRITE A ROMANCE NOVEL, LEAVING OUT THE SHAME

BUT FAIRYTALES BEGIN TO BREAK THE SPINE

WHEN YOU SCRATCH THE PAPER WALL THE WORDS ARE JUMPING OFF THE PAGE

AND YOU READ THE PAIN THAT BLEEDS BETWEEN THE LINES


BUT THERE LIES THE DANGER

DESOLATION RIDES

YOUR PERFECT STRANGER

UNTIL HE HIDES


HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU

HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE


HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU

HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE


BUT THERE LIES THE DANGER

IT'S LOST INSIDE YOU NOW

YOUR PERFECT STRANGER

SOMEHOW 


HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU

HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE


HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU

HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE


HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO YOU

HELLO MORNING AFTER BLUE
