A very smooth and groovy song in the Joni Mitchell-genre equating loss of a loved-one with the color blue, with a unique spin.


“The Blue”
Lyrics and Music by Chet Nichols
Copyright 2012 by Chet Nichols (ASCAP) & Magic Garage Music (ASCAP) :: ::

We had both been hypnotized
And under an ancient spell
When our hearts and souls surrendered
The very moment we both fell
I sit among the photographs
Scattered all around the room
Blacks and whites and colors
Turning blue, turning blue

There’s a gallery of memories
That is filled with lover’s art
I wander thru it daily
What we painted with our hearts
Hand in hand in Paris
And on the beaches of Cancun
So, how did these memories
Turn to blue, turn to blue

I sit before a canvas
A world of colors I can choose
I lift my brush and close my eyes
To catch a glimpse of you

And mix the ocean in the tropics
With a cold December sky
On the brush I use for memories
Of the love we left behind
We were just too much like
M aybe too good to be true
Still, I wish I could wash away all the blue
All the blue, all the blue
