Killing The Blues Lyrics

Leaves were falling - Just like embers
In colors red and gold they set us on fire
Burning just like a moonbeam - in our eyes
Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

I am guilty - of something
I hope you never do because there is nothing
Sadder than losing .. yourself in love
Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

Now,you ask me - Just to leave you
To go out on my own and get what I need to
You want me to find ..what I've already had
Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues

Somebody said they saw me - Swinging the world by the tail
Bouncing over a white cloud - Killing the Blues
