Flame Turns Blue
David Gray Lyrics


I went looking for someone I left behind
Yeah, but no one just a stranger I did find
I never noticed, hadn't seen it as it grew
The void between us where the flame turns blue

Different places, yeah, but they all look the same
Dreams of faces in the streets devoured by names
I'm in collision with every stone I ever threw
And blind ambition where the flame turns blue

Words dismantled, hey, and all the books unbound
Conversations though we utter not a sound
I heard a rumor, I don't know if it's true
That you'd meet me where the flame turns blue

So I venture underneath the leaden sky
See the freight train with it's one fierce eye
And then I listen as it tears the night in two
With a whistle and the flame turns blue

In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing

Through the lemon trees, the diamonds of light
Break in splinters on the pages where I write
That if I lost you I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue
That if I lost you I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue

In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing

ذهبت للبحث عن شخص تركته
نعم, ولكن لا أحد مجرد غريب لم أجد
لم ألاحظ أبدا ، لم أرها كما نمت
الفراغ بيننا حيث يتحول اللهب إلى اللون الأزرق
أماكن مختلفة ، نعم ، لكنها جميعا تبدو متشابهة
أحلام الوجوه في الشوارع التي التهمتها الأسماء
أنا في تصادم مع كل حجر من أي وقت مضى أنا ألقى
والطموح الأعمى حيث يتحول اللهب إلى اللون الأزرق
الكلمات تفكيكها ، مهلا ، وجميع الكتب غير منضم
المحادثات على الرغم من أننا لا ينطق صوت
سمعت شائعة ، لا أعرف ما إذا كانت صحيحة
أنك ستقابلني حيث يتحول اللهب إلى اللون الأزرق
لذلك أنا المغامرة تحت السماء الرصاص
انظر قطار الشحن مع انها عين شرسة واحدة
ثم أستمع كما الدموع الليل في اثنين
مع صافرة واللهب يتحول إلى اللون الأزرق
في الصباح سأغني
في الصباح سأغني
من خلال أشجار الليمون الماس من الضوء
كسر الشظايا على الصفحات التي أكتب فيها
أنه إذا فقدتك لا أعرف ماذا سأفعل
حرق إلى الأبد حيث يتحول اللهب الأزرق
أنه إذا فقدتك لا أعرف ماذا سأفعل
حرق إلى الأبد حيث يتحول اللهب الأزرق
💙

أتعس شيء عن الخيانة / هو أنه لا يأتي من أعدائك

David Gray is simply the best, most talented and yet most under-rated artist the UK has ever produced. I own his entire back catalogue. Why this guy didn't end up as big as some of the mainstream artists is an injustice to music lovers. Hope to see you return again soon David! You are a legend.

My favourite artist his music's shaped my life, Dj Bairdy

I feel like maybe his "White Ladder" taste of fame was enough for him. Now he has the best of both worlds, anonymity to live his life quietly but also sells out his shows.

Cheers to that! I am from the US but live in the Philippines now and his catalog is so often the soundtrack to my walk through everyday life. Bless that man!

I Couldn't agree more 👌👌👌

"I'm in collision with every stone I ever threw"

Thank you David.

This is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

The BEST, most talented male artist the UK has seen in recent times. Have every piece of work ever compiled by this literary genius. God bless David Gray.

@Rezaq1: I couldn't have sad it better. When I first heard this man back in 1999 it was the song 'Babylon' from the album 'White Ladders'. I was hooked from the start. I purchased his album 'Lost Songs 95-98' and that shit blew me the fuck away. I think this guy is the greatest Folk-Rock singer/song writer since Bob Dylan! I know I'll get flipped a lot of shit for that statement, but I just feel it's the damn truth. This man is a fuckin' genius thru and thru. Let's hope this man continues to be around for decades to come. Cheers!
