Seven Shades of Blue (lyrics) by Beth Nielsen Chapman

I wanna hold you now and listen to you breathe.
It’s like the ocean’s sound, whispering through the trees.
In the hollow of your shoulderthere’s a tidepool of my tears.
Where the waves came crashing over
And the shoreline disappeared.

Oh, baby, close your eyesFly back there with me.
To where the phosphor shines green flashlights from the sea.
And our nets were full of soft shells and our hearts were free from toil.
And we made love on the kitchen table
Until the water reached a boil.

We hold it all for a little while, don’t we?
Kiss the dice.
Taste the rain like little knives upon our tongues.
We can do no wrong when the lights go on
And the music plays
And we take the stage like we own the place,
As if time were cheap and the night forever young.

So let them turn my soul Seven Shades of Blue
And, with the ocean’s roar, I will wave to you.
And the birds will sing my laughter and the whales will steal my song.
I’ll be okay forever after.
And the world will get along.

We hold it all for a little while, don’t we?
Kiss the dice.
Taste the rain like little knives upon our tongues.
We can do no wrong when the lights go on
And the music plays
And we take the stage like we own the place,
As if time were cheap and the night forever young.
