Blue Eye, do you realize that I’m just leading you on?
I found you, or did you find me first, well first I found you so gone
Well up on your feet I’m a dead end street
You won’t find nothing here
Please understand I’m a one man band
Before those blue will wear a shade of tears

Don’t you realize that I’m holding you down?
Try to catch your breath and you will drown
No nothing is far right here in the bar
With you drinks and all that beer
The distance there’s been is gone with the gin
But tomorrow there’ll be nothing to drink but your tears

It’s four o’clock in the morning
I’m getting ready for bed
And though she got my warning
She didn’t get it, but heard instead
A promise

Because just like she’d never trust a man who say he can’t be bought
She would never doubt that man if he said he’s a fraud
So what should I say what card should I play
To make this really clear?
Seems there’s no way, no way you’ll be saved
And tomorrow those blue will wear a shade of tears
