BLUE LIFE

YOU BOUGHT A GUITAR.
LEARNED THREE CHORDS.
THOUGHT YOU COULD SING THE BLUES.
BUT CHILD YOU’RE JUST GOING THROUGH
THOSE 12-BAR MOTIONS!
ALL STYLE, NO PASSION!
YOU’RE WASTING MY PRECIOUS TIME!
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO SING THOSE BLUES,
YOU’VE GOT TO TAKE THE HARD ROAD
AND DON’T COME BACK TILL YOUR LIFE IS:

AS DARK AS THE DEEPEST DESPAIR.

AS FRAGILE AS BUTTERFLY DREAMS.

AS LOST AS THE LOVE YOU NO LONGER SHARE.

AS WILD AS A VOODOO CHILD!

AS OPEN AS THE SKY!

AS CRAZY AS A MADMAN HOWLIN’ AT THE MOON!

COME BACK THEN AND SING THE BLUES.

COME BACK WHEN YOU ARE THE BLUES!!
