"Blue Velvet" as written by and Roy/ Melson Joe Orbison....
She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet was the night
Softer than satin was the light

From the stars
She wore blue velvet
Bluer than velvet were her eyes
Warmer than May her tender sighs

Love was ours
Ours a love I held tightly
Feeling the rapture grow
Like a flame burning brightly
But when she left, gone was the glow of

Blue velvet
But in my heart there'll always be
Precious and warm, a memory

Through the years
And I still can see blue velvet
Through my tears

    General CommentBeautiful lyrics, and incredible imagery.

    "And I still can see blue velvet through my tears..."

    The only art I piece I know that really captures what it's like to cry... you can still see the things in front of you, but very blurry and streched out.

    Beautiful song.

    Also, best film ever.
