As I stand by your flame, I get burned once again
Feeling low down and blue

As I sit by the fire of your warm desire
I've got the blues for you


Every night you've been away
I've sat down and I have prayed that you're safe

In the arms of a guy who will bring you alive
Won't drag you down with abuse, oh

In the silk sheet of time, I will find peace of mind
Love is a bed full of blues

And I've got the blues for you
And I bust my brains out for you
And I'll tear my hair out, I'm going to tear my hair out just for you
If you don't believe what I'm saying, at 3 o'clock in the morning, baby, I'm singing my
    song for you
