Bughaw: The color blue

JOHNNY CASH

“Home Of The Blues”

⭐Just around the corner there’s heartache
Down the street that losers use
If you can wade in through the teardrops
You’ll find me at the Home of the Blues
I walk and cry while my heartbeat
Keeps time with the drag of my shoes
The sun never shines through this window of mine
It’s dark at the Home of the Blues.

⭐Oh, but the place is filled with the sweetest mem’ries
Mem’ries so sweet that I cry
Dreams that I’ve had left me feeling so bad
I just want to give up and lay down and die
So if you’ve just lost your sweetheart
And it seems there’s no good way to choose
Come along with me, misery loves company
You’re welcome at the Home of the Blues

Oh, but the place is filled with the sweetest mem’ries
Mem’ries so sweet that I cry
Dreams that I’ve had left me feeling so bad
I just want to give up and lay down and die
So if you’ve just lost your sweetheart
And it seems there’s no good way to choose
Come along with me, misery loves company
You’re welcome at the Home of the Blues
You’ll find me at the Home of the Blues
Yeah, you’re gonna find me at the Home of the Blues

*****
Though blue is a color associated with peace and tranquility. It is also associated with sadness. This song leaps at me for this prompt.
Listen to the Owl City version, I’ve never heard the Johnny Cash originally song.

This post is a response to the 30 Filipino words writing prompt. Hosted by Rosema and Maria

    Yay! Thanks for sharing this song, Deb. I never thought I missed Owl City this much 💕 And it’s my first time hearing Home of the Blues too, so that makes this extra special ☺️💐
