Time after time I sit and I wait for your call
I know I'm a fool but what can I say.
Whatever the price I'll pay for you, Madame Blue
Once long ago, a word from your lips and the world turned around.
But somehow you've changed, you're so far away
I long for the past and dream of the days with you, Madame Blue.


Suite Madame Blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore.
Suite Madame Blue, the future is all but past.
Dressed in your jewels, you made your own rules
You conquered the world and more ....heaven's door

(Instrumental)

America....America...America...America...
America....America...America...America...
America....America...America...America...
America....America...America...America...
America....America...America...America...
America....America...America...America...


Red white, and blue, gaze in your looking glass
You're not a child anymore.
Red, white, and blue, the future is all but past.
So lift up your heart, and make a new start
And lead us away from here.

    It's about America and her narcissism, reminding us that we have reached the goals of our founding fathers and need to reinvent ourselves and our ideals instead of staring in our mirrors and admiring our achievements.
    To the writer, Madame Blue represents the United States and he waits for her call ... as the world stops caring about her ... as she drifts from her original ideals wanders without moral compass. He asks her to be reborn with the passion and brilliance of the past ... for our future.
