The Gaslight Anthem Blue Dahlia Lyrics

Last updated: 07/24/2012 10:48:09 PM

On a hot self tree summer, steam just lies above them trees
You gotta stay inside and wait for the night and then come on over to see me.
And there’s a poetry about these streets and skips through the skin, goes right underneath
And momma always knew I need a girl like you, to me I never believed.

‘cause I’ve been so lonely, I can’t imagine not come and stay with me
‘cause I’ve been so lonely, I can’t imagine not come and stay with me.
Where did you get them scars? How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break? She said is sad enough to break.
How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine? Are you made enough to lay here?
She said I’m mad enough, my baby, come see about me.

Had a dream about you once, I can barely see your form,
And I met you between the wax and the needle and the words of my favorite song
And your black hair was like a raven if you turn skin over the beach.
And your back drop with your rollers and my side kick was all discrete.

And I’ve been so locked down, I’ve been long lost level on the ground.
Where did you get them scars? How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break? She said is sad enough to break.
How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine? Are you made enough to lay here?
She said I’m mad enough, my baby, come see about me.

Did it take you to the carnival to get locked up on the line?
Me, I got caught up with the fortune tellers and the ladies with the sleepy eyes.
It took years, my baby, just to come clean, every street light- a reminder
And all those apologies and the night was lonely next to mean
Even the night was lonely next to me.

Where did you get them scars? How blue is your heart?
Is it sad enough to break? She said is sad enough to break.
How long was your life?
Was it cold and strange like mine? Are you made enough to lay here?
She said I’m mad enough, my baby, come see about me.

Come see about me…
Whenever you’re lonely.
