"Questions In A World Of Blue" as written by Angelo Badalamenti and David K. Lynch....
Why did you go?
Why did you turn
away from me?

When all the world
seemed to sing
Why, why did you go?

Was it me?
Was it you?
Questions in a world of blue

How can a heart
that's filled with love
Start to cry?

When all the world
seemed so right
How, can love die?

Was it me?
Was it you?
Questions in a world of blue

When did the day
with all it's light
turn into night?

When all the world
seemed to sing
Why, why did you go?

Was it me?
Was it you?
Questions in a world of blue
Questions in a world of blue

    My InterpretationOutwardly, this song is about the disappearance of someone's soul mate out of the blue, seemingly without any answers. The singer asks why, confused, claiming that things were going beautifully before the other's departure. Beneath that facade of a broken relationship song, however, by the context of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me as well as the way the song makes me feel, I see it as a melancholy questioning of one's own happiness which no longer exists inside of them. Every question leads into a deeper sadness as each goes unanswered because your happiness, your life force, is gone; leaving you to ponder where things went wrong, wondering why things in your life can't go right, why the higher power (if existing) continues to be cruel and subject you to further pain no matter where you turn, and why you can't keep your happiness. Questions in a world of blue.

    'Why did you go? Was it me, was it you? Questions in a world of blue.'
