Let The Blue Skies Go To Your Head


Yeah he’s there in your driveway, about a quarter to nine
You can hear the boardwalk and the carnival rides
And it’s much too early, just to sit at home
But you only see thorns as he hands you a rose
As you lean on the hood of his car

The engine’s warm, he’s waiting for you
Tell me what you got to lose
It’s so hard to for you to believe in something real
You’re always countin’, countin’ on rain
Like it’s always gonna fall the same
Oh don’t go inside, don’t you play dead
Honey let the blue skies go to your head

You see a flash of your childhood, in his halogen lights
You can picture him leaving without a goodbye
You gotta push that away girl, or you’ll never get out
And this cruel old world will keep crumblin’ down
You ain’t always gonna be this young

The engine’s warm, he’s waiting for you
Tell me what you got to lose
It’s so hard to for you to believe in something real
You’re always countin’, countin’ on rain
Like it’s always gonna fall the same
Oh don’t go inside, don’t you play dead
Honey let the blue skies go to your head

Oh, oh, oh, it’s a long, hard fall, oh
Oh, oh, oh, but you can’t lose them all, oh

You’re always countin’, countin’ on rain
Like it’s always gonna fall the same
Oh don’t go inside, don’t you play dead
Honey let the blue skies go to your head
Oh don’t go inside, don’t you play dead
Honey let the blue skies go to your head
