I went looking for someone I left behind
Yeah, but no-one, just a stranger did I find
I never noticed, hadn't seen it as it grew
The voice between us where the flame turns blue

Different places, yeah but they all look much the same
Dreams of faces in the streets devoured by names
I'm in collision with every stone I ever threw
And blind ambition where the flame turns blue

Words dismantled, hey and all the books unbound
Conversations, though we utter not a sound
I heard a rumor, I don't know if it's true
That you'd meet me where the flame turns blue

So I venture underneath the leaden sky
See the freight train with it's one fierce eye
And then I listen as it tears the night into
With a whistle and the flame turns blue

In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing

Through the lemon trees the diamonds of light
Break in splinters on the pages where I write
That if I lost you, I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue
Yeah if I lost you, I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue

In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing

    Been married 40 years...left him for 10...in that time lost my darlin daughter.. She was 21, and was just finding her path... Brought the man back into my life...and it's still blue flames... Does it ever change. Still burnin blue... Forever...
