Turning Blue

You be my witness
You were there before the fall
(cause) I'm afraid I might have dreamed it all
And I can't wake up

Wake up to nothing
Nothing that was ever real
And nothing left here but the way I feel
And it won't let up

And all you wanna do is wind it back
To that moment in the sun
Cause you know that once you face the facts
Nothing's gonna save you from

CHORUS
Turning blue, Turning blue
Terrified, and all alone without a clue
Turning blue, Turning blue
Then you panic cause you don't know what to do
Feels like you'll never breathe again
But even all bad things come to an end
And it may not help to hear it, but it's true
It's just your turn, your turn in blue

So then it's over
At least until it's on again
You get your hopes up till it's gone and then
You slide back down

Back to the bottom
And wallow where it all went wrong
You drive in circles cryin' all night long
Till you're all cried out

Suddenly your heart's desire
Is spinning out of your control
One minute you were by the fire,
Now you're shivering in the cold

CHORUS
Turning blue, Turning blue
Terrified, and alone without a clue
Turning blue, Turning blue
Then the panic cause you don't know what to do
Feels like you'll never breathe again
But even all sad things come to an end
And it may not help to hear it, but it's true
It's just your turn, your turn in blue

And there's no way around what you've been going through
When it's your turn, your turn in blue
