"Learnin' the blues" as written by and Silvers....
The tables are empty the dance floor's deserted
You play the same love song it's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson in learnin' the blues

The cigarettes you light one after another
Won't help you forget her and the way that you love her
You're only burning a torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track for learnin' the blues

When you're at home alone, the blues will taunt you - constantly
When you're out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory

The nights when you don't sleep the whole night you're crying
You just can't forget her soon you even stop trying
You'll walk the floor and wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break you're learnin' the blues

    General Commentthis song to me is about the feeling you get when you love someone but can't be with them, it has a very traditional blues feel to it and katies voice exudes emotion.
