lyrics

The Deep Blue Sky (aka Jeff Tweedy’s 54th Beard)

You grabbed me and held me tight
Said ‘Don’t leave, don’t go outside tonight’
I said ‘What about your wife and your kids?’
You gave me a kiss and said
‘You’re way too good for this’.

Dry clean my best black dress,
Put it on and wrap those pearls around my neck
Meet in an out of the way place
Where we’re sure no one will recognize your face.

Chorus
I can’t hide the loneliness inside
Can’t fill it with a million stars
Can’t fill it with that deep blue sky
I can’t hide the lonely fool inside
Still falling for the wrong lover
Still dying each time

Dusty motels and cold sheets
Text messages sent while she sleeps
Never wake in the same bed
Count the hours that you spend with her instead

Chorus

Meet me tonight at 10 o’clock at the Café Delight
Leave your ring on the dressing table
Don’t even say a thing
Shhh…..don’t even say a thing
Shhh…..don’t even say a thing


I can’t hide the loneliness inside
Can’t fill it with a million stars
Can’t fill it with that deep blue sky
I can’t hide the lonely fool inside
Still falling for the wrong lover
Still dying each time

Still falling for the wrong lover
Die a little more each night…
