"Pink Turns to Blue" as written by and Grant Hart....
Going out each day to score, she was no whore but for me
Celebrating every day the way she thought it should be

And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue
And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue

She was always by my side and never tried to leave
Standing up for me and like a tree for what she believed

And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue
And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue

Don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue
I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue

No more rope and too much dope, she's lying on the bed
Angels pacing, gently placing roses 'round her head

And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue
Now I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue

And I don't know what to do
Now that pink has turned to blue
Now I don't know what to do

    General CommentHere's the full lyrics to the song:
    Going out each day to score
    She was no wh*re
    But for me
    Celebrating every day
    The way
    She thought it should be

    And I don't know what to do
    Now that pink has turned to blue

    She was always by my side
    And never tried
    To leave
    Standing up for me
    And like a tree
    For what she believed

    No more rope
    And too much dope
    She's lying on the bed
    Angels pacing
    Gently placing
    Roses 'round her head

    This song is window into the sad life of heroin users. Grant Hart was, and still my be, addicted to herion (check out his song All of My Senses from his solo album for a flip side to this version of heroin use). And tho these lyric are sad, when combined w/ the musical onslaught of Husker Du at the time it's more like being woken up after passing out in an alley by a punch to the fucking gut. It's that good.
