Forever Blue

Janis Ian/Jess Leary

I can't sleep
and I can't lie awake
I just float in between
Tangled up
in the sheets on my bed
and i can't get you out of my head

'cause the day never comes too soon,
and the night is forever blue
Was there ever a time -
just one night or two -
when dreams weren't always you

I'm old friends
with the quarter moon
that shines on the clock on my wall
Hours pass
'til the dawn's breaking throughm
and I have cried a river or two

'cause the day never comes too soon,
and the night is forever blue
Was there ever a time -
just one night or two -
when dreams weren't always you

And the moon's not to blame
as I whisper your name
She knows how i drove you away
But if prayers had wings
then the moonlight would bring you back
forever to stay

'cause the day never comes too soon,
and the night is forever blue
Was there ever a time -
just one night or two -
when dreams weren't always you
and I wasn't forever blue
