Barenaked Ladies

Powder Blue

Play

With each mistake,
You either bend or break
With every word I choose
You only seem to bruise
Powder blue always suited you,
And was your suitor too
Until you're powder blue*

You're going off the deep end
I'm going over all the things I've gotta say

Apologies from my front door
I couldn't love you more

The bell was cracked
Your senses sacked
What once seemed civilized, in fear was paralyzed
I made love blind, I lost my mind
And now I'm over you
As I'm not under you

We thought we'd drive forever
Now is it okay if I walk you to your car?

Apologies, from your car floor
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more

Baby between you and me, love is all we need
You held out your heart
So I could watch it bleed
I never thought you could ever fall
Into my life, so banal
But something so light shouldn't hurt... at all

Apologies, from my front door
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more
I couldn't love you more
Couldn't love you anymore

*Could also be "until your powder blew."
