"Almost Blue" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Playing with your toy soldiers
You don't know what they're for
So you just make lots of noises
Decide who wins the war
Now you're playing with matches
Even though you've been warned
That something evil could happen
You don't care cause you're bored

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

In the middle of summer
It's only you and your friends
Each of you tryin' to go under
But hoping it never ends
You finally make it to winter
And all rejoice in the snow
Crawling over each other
There's nowhere else you can go

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue
And you're never going back to there
No you're never going back again
Until you're blue

In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue
In your hideaway
Almost new
Almost blue

    General CommentI have no idea why that extra bit appears at the end of the lyrics. I did not include it. It says "Almost Blue written by E Costello / Lyrics c Universal Music Publishing Group / Lyrics powerd [sic] by LyricFind"
    This is a Joseph Arthur song. As far as I know, it has nothing to do with Elvis Costello's album of the same name. I wasn't anywhere LyricFind, either. I don't get it. What's going on?
    Sorry for the confusion. I hope I didn't break anything.

    General CommentRight, now it says "We are not authorized to display these lyrics."
    I think it is because of that thing I saw added at the end of the lyrics before they were blocked. It said:
    "Almost Blue written by E Costello
    Lyrics c Universal Music Publishing Group
    Lyrics powerd [sic] by LyricFind"

    There's something weird going on, here.
