Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Blue
Oh, so lonesome for you
Why can't you be blue over me

Blue
Oh, so lonesome for you
Tears fill my eyes 'til I can't see
Three o'clock in the morning
Here am I
Sittin' here so lonely
So lonesome I could cry

Blue
Oh, so lonesome for you
Why can't you be blue over me

Now that it's over
I realized
Those weak words you whispered were nothin' but lies

Blue
Oh, so lonesome for you




Why can't you be blue over me
Why can't you be blue over me

Sitting here at mom's bedside at a nursing home. She doesn't have much time left and can't communicate. She loved this song so much and used to sing along. She's moving her toes and fingers -- it's delightful. Thank you to the songwriter and the talented Ms Rimes ❤ for making mom so happy today.

One of the greatest recorded songs across all genres. Doesn’t make any sense how talented this woman was at 13. Timeless.
