"Mr. Blue" as written by and Catherine Feeny....
Mr. Blue
I told you that I love you
Please believe me

Mr. Blue
I have to go now
Darling don't be angry

I know that you're tired
I know that you're sour and sick and sad
For some reason

So I'll leave you with a smile
Kiss you on the cheek
And you will call it treason

That's the way it goes
Some days a fever comes at you
Without a warning

And I can see it in your face
You've been waiting to break
Since you woke up this morning

Mr. Blue
Don't hold your head so low that you can't see the sky
Mr. Blue
It ain't so long since you were flying high

Mr. Blue
I told you that I love you
Please believe me

    My OpinionHmmm...
    I think its more lover/best friend related but...

    I took it as an illness (most likely depression) or maybe just a rough patch and shes saying she has to move on. When you get depressed like that, you start to only like being depressed because nothing else feels right, so you start to get used to it.

    But phneuugh...
    I dont know.

    General Commentwell i think that this isn't about her in love...but about her breaking up with her lover.

    Mr. Blue
    I told you that I love you
    Please believe me
    [maybe she's telling him that she loves him but she just doesn't want to be with him.]

    Mr. Blue
    I have to go now
    Darling don’t be angry
    [she left him, but she doesn't want him upset about it.]

    I know that you’re tired
    I know that you’re sore and sick and sad
    For some reason
    [maybe he's feeling blue [[hence, mr. blue]] about her departure and he's sad.]

    So I’ll leave you with a smile
    Kiss you on the cheek
    And you will call it treason
    [she leaves him with a kiss, and he'll call it treason. it's a reference to the bible when judas i believe betrays jesus and spots him out by giving him a kiss on the cheek. so maybe he thinks she betrayed him because judas and jesus were such great friends, as the couple would be, but then judas betrayed jesus, as she betrayed him.]

    That’s the way it goes
    Some days a fever comes at you
    Without a warning
    [maybe she's saying that she broke up with him without a warning.]

    And I can see it in your face
    You’ve been waiting to break
    Since you woke up this morning
    [maybe he's wanting to break down and she knows it.]

    Mr. Blue
    Don’t hold your head so low that you can’t see the sky
    Mr. Blue
    It ain’t so long since you were flying high
    [she's telling him not to be so sad about it, because from the first line, she's saying she loves.]

    Mr. Blue
    I told you that I love you
    Please believe me
    [she is saying still loves him.]


    just my outlook.

    General CommentI agree with most other opinions, I interpreted the song somewhat like this;
    She is in love with a man [Mr. Blue], who is quite sad and has been for some time. She desperately wants to help him, and encourages him to feel better, but in the end there's really nothing she can do, and so decides she has to leave.

    Song MeaningI think she is singing about her boyfriend who has depression.
    he's always paranoid and worries that she doesn't love him, and she does.

    General CommentFirst comment! This song is beautifully written. In my opinion it's about this woman who loves this man and he is down and out. She is trying to reassure him and help him to get back on his feet with her love. Catherine Feeny's voice is dreamy.
