I guess it finally dawned on me
You're gone
Well maybe I can make it on
my own
I don't stay up wondering
if you'll call
Some nights I don't dream
of you at all
Your memory is still hurting me
inside
That's something I'm still learning
How to hide
Though this heart of mine has lost an ache or two
I've only turned a lighter shade of blue

(chorus)

Looking down the line sometimes
I think I see a change
Then I think again and think of you
Here and there I've turned a stone
But the mountain hasn't moved
I've only turned a lighter shadde of blue

I'm still afraid of turning out the light
And it takes all my strength to face the night
Cause that's the time I face the bitter truth
That I've only turned a lighter shade of blue

repeat chorus
