Sky Blue & Black Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In the calling out to one another
In the lovers up and down the strand
In the sound of the waves and the cries
Of the seagulls circling the sand

In the fragments of the songs
Carried down the wind from some radio
In the murmuring of the city in the distance
Ominous and low

I hear the sound of the world
Where we played and the far too simple beauty
Of the promises we made

If you ever need holding
Call my name and I'll be there
If you ever need holding
And no holding back, I'll see you through
Sky blue and black

Where the touch of the lover ends
The soul of the friend begins
There's a need to be separate and a need to be one
And a struggle neither wins

Where you gave me the world I was in
And a place I could make a stand
I could never see how you doubted me
When I'd let go of your hand

Yeah, and I was much younger then
And I must have thought that I would know
If things were going to end

And the Heavens were rolling
Like a wheel on a track
And our sky was unfolding
And it'll never fold back
Sky blue and black

And I'd have fought the world for you
If I thought that you wanted me to
Or put aside what was true or untrue
If I'd known that's what you needed
What you needed me to do

But the moment has passed by me now
To have put away my pride
And just come through for you somehow

If you ever need holding
Call my name and I'll be there
If you ever need holding
And no holding back, I'll see you through
Sky

You're the color of the sky
Reflected in each store-front window pane
You're the whispering and the sighing
Of my tires in the rain

You're the hidden cost
And the thing that's lost in everything I do
Yeah and I'll never stop looking for you
In the sunlight and the shadows
And the faces on the avenue

That's the way love is
That's the way love is
That's the way love is
Sky, sky blue and black
