Cigarettes recommended
"Need a Light to use?"
said the Lady in Blue after the rain
What is left?
What is right... you may understand,
I left the right man.
said the Lady in Blue,
"I left the right man."

Boys play well into midnight
"Can I join you?"
said the Lady in Blue after the rain

"Pillow cold, but She won't stray into other lands," he said,
"Take my hand," to the Lady in Blue,
"You wronged the right man."

"Need a Light to use?"
said the Lady in Blue,
"I wronged the right man"

Boys play well into midnight
"Can I join you?"
said the Lady in Blue after the rain
Boys you play well into midnight
"Can I join you?"
said the Lady in Blue
said the Lady in Blue
said the Lady in Blue,
"I can play too."

    General CommentGreat ending.
    [Nicotine/night shading towards banishment. Opposite day language in effect. Manors v. Manners.]
    The swirling smoky tendrils of music at the end of the album seem beautiful to me.

    General CommentThis song's ending is eerily reminiscent of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me by U2 (and another Filipino song - "Ang Huling El Bimbo" - which is about a lady who died mysteriously). This song is really creepy, but I love it so much...I have a feeling this song is a ghost story. But then I think this is also about a woman who keeps on picking the wrong men, and still searches for the right man in the wrong ways. In that case I can f-ing relate! Ugh!

    General CommentFor me this is a reference, or a reply of sorts, to "Famous Blue Raincoat" by Leonard Cohen of which she did an excellent cover version... Maybe the lady's (Jane) P.O.V...
