I never loved blues 'til Stevie Ray Vaughan
I never felt you 'til you were gone
And all of my shadows grow taller than trees
And all of my good mean nothing to me

Don't let go
Never say
I told you so
Yeah

If there was a word, what I did to myself
And all the longing, but nothing else
If there was a word for longing and peace
Until you give me some sweet release
Ohhahhhohhhh
I'll let go
I'll let go
Yeah

(Chorus)
You can't say we didn't give it
Can't say we didn't try
We can't say we didn't give it all the way
You can't say we didn't sing it
Every single night
Can't say we didn't give it all the way

Find another girl


And all the statues that keep with the park
Beg for light fall after dark
And all the bones sing just one more day
I didn't never do it all the way

(Chorus)
You can't say we didn't give it
Can't say we didn't try
We can't say we didn't give it all the way
You can't say we didn't sing it
Every single night
Can't say we didn't give it all the way

I never loved blues 'til Stevie Ray Vaughan
I never felt you 'til you were gone
And all of my shadows grow taller than trees
And all of my blues mean nothing to me

Ohhhhhhhhhh

Yeah

Oooohhhhhhhhhhhh

(Chorus)
You can't say we didn't give it
Can't say we didn't try
We can't say we didn't give it all the way
You can't say we did the limit
Every single night
Can't say we didn't sing it all the way


Find another girl

Find another girl

Find another girl

    General CommentI think this is one of 3eb's greatest since Blinded. He's singing about a relationship that he ended and now he regrets ending it. And he's saying how he thought it was the right thing to do at the time, but now he's "longing" for her, and wanting her to forgive him and give him "some sweet release" but she refuses.

    And at the chorus he's saying how they tried to much and so hard to make it work but in the end it just wasn't working for him. And now he has to convince himself to find another girl because he ruined it.

    However, in the same respect, I could see this song as a song about how he got dumped and is trying to figure out the reasoning behind it because they worked so hard to make it.

    I love the lyrics "i never loved blues til stevie ray vaughn i never felt you til you were gone" because it's too often you don't realize what you have until it's gone and really, i think that's the true meaning of this song.
