Brilliant Blues

Say goodbye to the brilliant blues
Say goodbye to the brilliant blues
Say goodbye....

It's time to live
So make me, take me
It's time, to give
So don't betray me, pay me

The brilliant blues, don't want to be frozen
I'll spend my mornings at the sunshine cafe
I've read the news and the clique-ridden notions
I know that now is the time to stay

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To teach (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So tell me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on tell me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To preach (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So help me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on and help me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

The brilliant blues will never flow this way again
The color of the river is gray
The brilliant blues
Have faded into sadness and pain
And now is the time to say...It's time

You and me are going to finally sail away
We'll get far away from the blues and the mist in the rain
You and me are going to fight until we win the day
For now is the time that we must say goodbye
To the brilliant blues.

The brilliant blues
I Don't want to be frozen
I'll spend my mornings at the sunshine cafe
I've read the news and the clique-ridden notions
I know that now is the time to stay.

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To trust (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So buy me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on and try me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To thrust (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So guide me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Stay beside me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

The brilliant blues
Will never flow this way again
The color of the river is gray
The brilliant blues
Have faded into sadness and pain
And now is the time to say...It's time
