From the album BEAUTIFUL HITS (2006)

Don't wish it away look at it like it's forever
Between you and me I could honestly say
That things can only get better
While I'm away dust out the demons inside
And it won't be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Just stare into space, picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I'm your woman
Wait on me, cry in the night if it helps
More than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

I guess thatís why they call it the blues
I guess thatís why they call it the blues
And I guess thatís why they call it the blues
I guess thatís why they call it the bluesÖ
