(m. jagger/k. richards)

As I stand by your flame
I get burned once again
Feelin low down, Im blue

As I sit by the fire
Of your warm desire
Ive got the blues for you, yeah

Every night youve been away
Ive sat down and I have prayed
That you're safe in the arms of a guy
Who will bring you alive
Wont drag you down with abuse

In the silk sheet of time
I will find peace of mind
Love is a bed full of blues

And Ive got the blues for you
And Ive got the blues for you
And I'll bust my brains out for you
And I'll tear my hair out
Im gonna tear my hair out just for you
If you don't believe what Im singing
At three oclock in the morning, babe, well
Im singing my song for you
