They met up on the blue moon
and they parted on a cloudy day
They were so in love
and out of school, but he was going so
far, far away
She said, "I'll be true to you, even though you don't want me to...
I'll be blue for you, even though you've asked me not to..."
Well the years drifted by them as we all know they can
He found other women but she refused other men,
But as fate would have it, they met again
She was on a down hill slide, he was just slidin' in....
As he looked into her eyes that night he never realized
the only real love in his life was passin' by
When he turned and left her there, his words, "good bye"
he heard her calling out to him and as he walked
" I've been true to you,
seems like speakin' to me is the least that you could do...
and I've been blue for you...
even though you've asked me not to"
She'd been drinking way too hard one night,
She'd been drinking way too long,
Alone and pale in a cheap hotel
She died there in the dawn
Kneeling by her grave
Oh so late and oh so wrong
He longed to hold her close again
crying on and on
He cried, "I'll be true to you...
after all that I have put you through
and I'll be blue for you....
Though you never even asked me to..."
