Baby Blue
by 13th Floor Elevators

You must leave now, take what you need
You think will last
But whatever you wish to keep
You better grab it fast

Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun
Strike another match, go start anew
It's all over now, Baby Blue

All your seasick sailors
They are rowing home
And all your empty handed armies
They are going home

Your lover who just walked out the door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
The carpet, too, is moving under you
It's all over now, Baby Blue

Leave your stepping stones behind
There's something that calls for you
Forget the dead you've left
They will not follow you
Your vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
The sky, too, is falling over you
It's all over now, Baby Blue
