Nikka Costa – Chained To The Blues lyrics

The sun turned from my window

And let the blues come in

Now I've got pain and sorrow

To talk to again about my

Case of the missin' you's

The used to be's and

The lonlies, too,

Keepin' my heart chained to the blues

Old yesterday's dropped by

With the wishes you were here's

Sure made good times fly

'til they disappeared

Leavin' me with the miseries

The lost without you's and

The why did you leaves

Keepin' my heart chained to the blues

Oh, my, the way he said goodbye

Just laughin' at me cryin'

In my sorrow

Oh, me, these painful memories

Torture me like there's

No tomorrow, when

My heart will be breakin'

Right along with the dawn

Each part of me achin

Just knowin' he's gone and

Left me with the stark ravin' mad's

The I should've done's and

The wish that I had's

Keepin' my heart chained to the blues

Keepin' my heart chained to the blues

Keepin' my heart chained to the blues
