Though the miles are between us
I thought our love would strengthen
As it has so many times before
But something has happened
I can see it in your eyes
I can feel my world is crumblin'
And the blues are at my door

The last letter that you wrote
Was on a blue piece of paper
That old feeling's back
The clouds are moving in

The beginning of the end is near
I feel your love has faded into darkness
It seems I have no friend
I feel the blues moving in

Oh it's not the words you wrote
That made me sad and broken-hearted
That's put me in this sad shape I'm in
Between the lines are mixed emotions
And there's teardrops on the paper
You said that's all I'll write today
I'll close for now old friend

The last letter that you wrote
Was on a blue piece of paper
That old feeling's back
The clouds are moving in

The beginning of the end is near
I feel your love has faded into darkness
It seems I have no friend
I feel the blues moving in

My state of mind is desperate
And this hole that I'm sinking in
Gets deeper while I'm digging to get out
Oh please give the right answer
To the questions I'm asking
Tell me you still love me
That would turn my world about


The last letter that you wrote
Was on a blue piece of paper
That old feeling's back
The clouds are moving in

The beginning of the end is near
I feel your love has faded into darkness
Seems I have no friend
I feel the blues moving in
I feel the blues moving in
I feel the blues moving in
