Draped In Blue

lyrics

In my head the gates are standing
In my mind I am out of time
In my head the mobs are chanting
What's there to find?

Even if I knew
A haven it's draped in blue
Cause I'll have to leave
If not now eventually

Somewhere else I left him standing
In my mind he's still standing there
He moved their souls and left them chanting
They'll follow him anywhere, anywhere

Even if I knew
A haven it's draped in blue
Cause I'll have to leave
If not now eventually
Even if I knew
A haven it's draped in blue
Cause I'll have to leave
If not now eventually

Once, I had a daughter
Raised her, loved her, and lost her
Everyone's got to leave
I wish you well, said I
I'll meet you next in hell, meant I
Everyone's got to leave

Even if I knew
A haven it's draped in blue
Cause I'll have to leave
If not now eventually
Even if I
New a haven I
Know I'd have to leave

about

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
