Unsewn Blues

Baby I keep dreaming of you
Walking down this lonely avenue
Well I saw a picture of you in a clothing store on the wall
You had your famous beauty with you and all
The tangles in my mind started to itch
And my old wounds began to unstitch
Baby I can’t take these blues anymore
Well I strolled through an old electronic store
Saw your face on the T.V. for a make-up company
You’re living with success now and you’re heart is free

I stilll remember the days that were all too short
We took a road trip all the way to New York
And we shared spaghetti with the same fork
We walked through Time Square while the music played
We danced all night long and your heart was displayed
That night made our love so much stronger
I wish we could have stayed there longer
Well those were days of tenderness and laughter
And we thought we’d live happily ever after
We said that our love would never fall apart
Well, it’s been 10 years and I’ve still got a blue heart
Now you live in fame and everyone knows your name
While I live with a self- blame and a heart full of shame
And baby I keep dreaming of you
I wonder if you dream of me too

Well I’m walking down this lonely avenue
Trying to find something for my mind to do
‘Cause baby I can’t stop thinking about you
I remember sittin’ on a window sill
Just you and I, the moon and the stars in the sky
The words you said are clear to me still
“I’m going away for a while, so this is goodbye”
All that you left me was a sad kiss and a tearful sigh
You stood up and you walked out my front door
And I knew I would never see you anymore
I knew I’d never see your heart again
And that’s how our love came to an end
Baby I’ve been dreaming of you again
Well I’m slowly walking on down these lonely avenue’s
Trying to forget these”My ex-girlfriend is famous" blues
And now the sun’s going down and everyone’s going on home
I keep walking across town, drunk and cold with a name unknown
