So you got the blues
The evening wore out your shoes
To a shufflin' beat
It's a colorful crowd

Spraycan information
Cover the lonely station
A checkpoint for the state of the nation

So you got the blues
And we sleep in hope
The evening wore out your shoes

On the mission-beat beat
The radio drug
Wayward destination
Secondhand sensation

Take this heart
Break this heart
Wrap it up

So you got the blues
And it's gettin' later and later
The evening wore out your shoes
If you're in without the sail

Now back of the cell
The plug and the cord
Shoulder dislocation
They're bruised in isolation

Take this heart
Break this heart
And give me some

In the eye of the storm
We were counting on walls
Cross my heart confusion
We're all looking for a new solution

Say it's the heat of the land, now
Swallowin' sweat how
Say those dreams can shake me
God come down and save me

Take this heart
Break this heart
And give me some sleep

So you got the blues
The evening wore out your shoes
So you got the blues
The evening wore out your shoes
So, so you got the blues
