"Blue" as written by and Joni Mitchell....
Blue, songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to sea betore
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away
Blue, here is a song for you
Ink of a pin
Underneath the skin
An empty space to fill in
Well there're so many sinking now
You've got to keep thinking
You can make it through these waves
Acid, booze, and ass
Needles, guns, and grass
Lots of laughs, lots of laughs
Well everybody's saying that hell's the hippest way to go
Well I don't think so
But I'm gonna take a look around it though
Blue, I love you

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me

    General Commenti've never actually heard this song though i bet it is great just like the rest of Sarah's songs,

    however reading the lyrics bring emotion to mind.
    Sarah's lyrics always have a way of making things personal for her listeners, that is why i love her music so much.

    i guess i'll have to download this one...

    General CommentThis actually isn't a Sarah song, but a Joni Mitchell song. Even though Sarah herself does a beautiful rendition. The song, just about brings me to tears whenever I hear it.

    Seriously one of the saddest songs ever written.

    General CommentA truly beautiful and extremely sad song.
    I think the ending is so strong; she really shows passion through her voice in this song.
