have faith
have faith
in the blue

strange how
the ears ring
after a night
of wrongdoing

strange how
the arms sting
when you're left
holding nothing

you need contact daily
your conscience is failing
and you already love her

    General CommentUm okay this is probably a long shot, but this is what I found when I googled "blue lady":

    "According to the ghostly Coastside legend, some 72 years ago a beautiful, young woman met by chance, a handsome dangerous man and fell in love with him. This sophisticated ladies' man was, say some, a piano player in the bar. The naive young woman, always dressed in blue was already married to another but her unsuspecting husband and young son never knew of the illicit affair. She made many trips to the restaurant to be with her lover.

    The beautiful lady in blue died in a violent automobile accident and it is here at the Distillery you will now find her searching for her lover."

    General Commenti think this is about having an afair.
    the blue lady...i dont know what thats about but...
    your earing ring when youre embarassed, crying, enjoying something, or feeling blissful so basically any time your filled with emotion. when youre having an afair i assume you, at one time, are filled with one of these emotions.
    a night of wrong doing means they had the physical afair the night before.
    youre conscience is failing thus the wrong doing.
    you need contact daily meaning you want/need the physical part of the afair and perhaps thats why this person turned to another person. perhaps they were "fulfilled" enough.
    eventually i think they fall in love. OR it could be one of those things when your having sex and you accidently say "i love you" when you really should be saying "i love this" but after one night of sex he already "loves her" you could even look at love a if it meant sex. he loves her. get it? alright. im done.

    General CommentStrange how the arms sting
    When you're left holding nothing

    I see that as self-mutilation. When the person lost a lover, she went to self harm.

    I'm sorry if one does not agree with this.

    General Commentjust from reading some of the words in it like "have faith," "wrongdoing," and "conscience" the reference to "blue lady" might be the bible's Mary. just a thought...

    General CommentI'm not sure we're supposed to take the "arms sting" line literally. More "it hurts like hell when you lose somebody." I guess this could cause some to turn to self mutilation, but I never read it as such.

    General Commentgiven the fact that caithlin's written songs like CT catholic, i always took "the blue lady" as the virgin mary. especially since in catholicism, mary is always wearing blue (yes, i too was a "ct catholic"). just sayin'.
