Lyrics: Henry Biggs
Here I float again into the color of pain
Sweet melancholy undefined, unchained
My blueness, is a mood that rejoices
A bitterness, left too long voiceless
A hurt, I try to hold inside
Flows out of my soul and frees my mind
I let me pain go and let the notes smooth it
Moving into the flow of the music
Alone again my friend but not lonely
Sadness is carried on the wings of a melody
I don't hear the breeze and the trees in the wind
Stop their whistlin' and seem to be listenin'
Feel sad, but it ain't half-bad
Walkin' in space flyin' above the wasteland
Down cuz I ain't got you
But I'm cradled by my rapsody in blue
Rapsody in Blue
My sweet rapsody in blue
My bittersweet rapsody in blue
I loved hard, lord I never saw it comin'
I handed my heart and soul to that woman
I get down from old thoughts of happiness
brushin' her hair back the warmth of her wet kiss
Fingers walkin' the soft of her smooth skin
Body in rhythm that rolled like a sweet sin
She's gone how come my story won't end?
Just let me flow into my senses and then
There it is notes bathe my senses
body goes limp notes leave me defenseless
Free again from that cradlin' sound
My feet fly off the ground
Though I feel the pain, I'm still smilin'
cuz the music boats me to my own little island
I feel like I'm deep into sleep and dreamin'
chasin' away all the world's demons
Blues flow through me and feelings of no hope
Are turned around by my bluesy kaleidoscope
Weightlessness, my ego goes
And me I just bounce and roll like a yo-yo
Melt into fluid go to it let your heart go
Hang your head low and slow up the tempo
Cry and you'll be cradled too
by that sweet little Rapsody in blue
