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 

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 

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