"Blue" as written by and Gary Michael/olson Louris....
Where have all my friends gone?
They've all disappeared.
Turned around maybe one day, you're all that was there.
Stood by on believing, stood by on my own.
Always thought I was someone, turned out I was wrong.
And you brought me through and you made me feel so blue,
Why don't you stay behind?
So blue. Why don't you stop, and look at what's going down.

If I had an old woman she'd never sell me a lie
It's hard to sing with someone who won't sing with you.
Give all of my mercy, give all of my heart.
Never thought that I'd miss you, that I'd miss you so much.
And you brought me through and you made me feel so blue.
Why don't you stay behind?
So blue.
Why don't you stop and look at what's going down.

All my life (staying while) I'm waiting for (staying while)
Someone I could (waiting around) show the door
(now that I'm blue) but nothing seems to change (that I'm blue from now on)
You come back that month so blue.
Why don't you stay behind?
So blue.
Why don't you, why don't you stay behind?
So blue.
Why don't you, why don't you stay behind?
So blue
Why don't you stop and look at what's down

    General CommentThis song reminds me of a girl I fell for a long time ago. We started to hang out together after our other friends at our job quit or got fired. All of a sudden the only people in our group of friends was us and we fell hard for each other. She out this on a mixtape for me and I have loved The Jayhawks ever since. One of the most underrated bands of all time.

    General CommentThis song is so good that the McCartney/Lennon songwriting team would be proud to call this one their own.
