Dark Blue Afternoon
 
Lyrics
VERSE
It ain't near the same blue as the everyday sky
Oh, it's way darker; like a bad puffed-up black eye
It can come from a lie or a sad goodbye
It hurts so bad when it's a dark blue afternoon

CHORUS
On a dark blue afternoon, love cannot be seen
When it gets like this, your mind just reels
On a dark blue afternoon, no one can hear you scream
You can talk, but you can't say what you feel
On a badass dark blue afternoon

RIDE

VERSE
Rain come lightnin'; it's dark all over town
When you sent that text, babe, you tore me down
Thunder all around; what a frightenin' sound
Ain't there some way to escape this dark blue afternoon?

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
As the dark blue afternoon becomes the blackest night
Come on home, baby, put everything right

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
What a badass dark blue afternoon
