She Only Loves Blue (Joni)

Words and Music copyright Nathan Bell 2009

She thinks her life is a pretty fair life
The mistakes she made are mistakes that she likes
But she only loves blue

There is no gray only white and black
She won’t say what she might take back
And she only loves blue

She loves that Old 33 1/3 record
She loves the scratches
The pops and the hisses
The song remembers
The things that she misses
So she loves Blue

She kept all of her old album covers
They were more faithful than all of her lovers
But she only loves blue

She likes a Miles trumpet
A little Eric Dolphy
She likes Johnny Cash
Crosby Stills and Nash
And Young
But when it’s all said and done
She only loves blue

She just loves blue
