    Lyrics

    Don't wish it away
    Don't look at it like it's forever
    Between you and me
    I could honestly say
    That things can only get better

    And while I'm away
    Dust out the demons inside
    And it won't be long
    Before you and me run
    To the place in our hearts
    Where we hide

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    Just stare into space
    Picture my face in your hands
    Live for each second
    Without hesitation
    And never forget I'm your man

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    [interlude]

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
    Time on my hands
    Could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children
    Living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    {Laughing like children
    Living like lovers}
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    {Laughing like children
    Living like lovers}
    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues

    And I guess that's why
    They call it the blues
