"Copper Blue"

VERSE
So they've finished their last set it seems
The jazz-men pack up their notes and throw away the key.
And our carafe of house Loire is getting thin
And I'm noticing - God, I'm noticing...

CHORUS
The drooping tulips on the pendant hanging from your neck
Such a sweet bouquet embracing me.

VERSE
Embracing your two lips pleasant in drink and talk
About all that film noir and the back seat of a car.
And our waitress speaking broken English says it's time to go
And I'm noticing - God, I'm noticing...

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE
Embracing your tulips leaving red upon the cloth
It's time to pay our way, the night is calling us

BRIDGE
Back to the Old Town
Into the midnight sun.

VERSE
And all the nightshade flowers on the lane
And I'm noticing - God, I'm noticing...

REPEAT CHORUS

OUTRO
And every cent that I find in the street
Reminds me of you.
