Blue Sky Blues Lyrics

by Ryan Adams

Blue sky, when you gonna learn to rain?
And let yourself go blue for once
And let go off that weight you've been carrying
In this house, no one goes to sleep for days
It's like we're working on a mountainside
Trying not to slide into the ocean

I can take care of you
But only if you want
I'm strong enough to carry you
Across the icy lake, across the icy lake

But I can't fight your blues
'Cause I know I'll lose what's left of my mind
And I can't win but for you I will try
Oh, my baby blue

My mountain is hidden in a pile of trees
And she's the one I'll have to climb
For everyone to see
Blue sky, when you gonna learn to rain?
And let yourself go blue for once
And let go off that pain

I can take care of me
The way you'd like to feel
Underneath the riverbed
Across the icy lake, across the icy lake

But I can't fight your blues
'Cause I know I'll lose what's left of my mind
And I can't win but for you I will try
For you, for you, my baby blue
