John Prine – No Ordinary Blue lyrics
[Verse 1]
Last night
Turned on the TV
Looked out the window
And then pulled down the shades
And I came to
The conclusion
My mind could not be made

[Verse 2]
She said "Well what're you thinkin'?"
"I'm just a-wonderin'
"Is it somethin' that I did?"
I said "It's nothin'
"Just somethin'
"I picked up as a kid"

[Chorus]
I hear a lot of empty spaces
I see a big hole in you
I feel an outline that traces
An imaginary path back to you
This ain't no ordinary blue

[Verse 3]
Last night
For a split sec
I was a train-wreck
I was a complicated guy
I hope we don't find
This's the last time
We ever say "Goodbye"

[Verse 4]
The orange gleam
Is risin'
On the horizon
Of the outskirts of my mind
I sat and listened
As it glistens
It says "Leave the past behind"

[Chorus]
I hear a lot of empty spaces
I see a big hole in the view
I feel an outline that traces
An imaginary path back to you
This ain't no ordinary blue

[Outro]
Too cold to hold
Too deep to swim through
Too cold to hold
Too deep to swim through

[Verse 1]
Last night
Turned on the TV
Looked out the window
And then pulled down the shades
