Blue In Paradise lyrics

(co-written by andy partridge and tracey bryn of voice of the beehive)

Silver lining changed to grey skies
When a red-eyed angel waved goodbye
In my lifetime, I may find him once again to my surprise
Ill wait here, patiently and you may just return to find me

Chorus:
Blue in paradise, the paint runs down
Just like my teardrops
Blue in paradise, Ill paint the town
Until the hurt stops

Make a wish on every rainbow for the colours to reappear
Green with envy, wishing you home, red faced mad I wait alone
Ill stay here, one day dear you may just return to find me

Chorus

And if you return, nothing will be different
And if you return, nothing really will have changed
The red of my heart is black and blue now
Broken up and dragged around

Ill lay my dreams all down to sleep here
Ill close my eyes to hear no sound
Im cryin, Im dyin
But I will hold my breath
til you find me
