Sing the blues
Shall I betray a lover's secret?
Shall I tell of tears and pain?
Should I mention days of longing?
Tell of nights alone again?
Shall I speak of never knowing?
Might be best if I forgot
Shall I tell of petal torment?
Does she love me does she not?
Shall I tell of weepy pillows?
Shall I tell of tearful stairs?
Shall I add forever waiting?
Steamy on and off affairs
Liken hearts to worn down shoes?
Broken dreams like broken guitars
Bet your life I'll sing the blues
