Planet of the Blue

from Four Ambient Tales by Billie Ray Martin

/

lyrics

stranded a thousand times
she counted the stars, she said true
love don't fail
she said you
don't doubt me

oh I wanna pretend
how passionate all the things shine
for you
only
so let's go down
to the west bay

oh let's get carried away boy
right to a distant shore
there may be an island all for you

I wanna go down to the western bay to leave with you
heading all the way up to the stars
oh and don't you know you little fool
oh it's the planet of the blue

forget all the everyday scars
tonight we might get a start
you
tide's up
you
don't stop

go let it carry you away boy
floating into to the sky
you might even get there if you try

I wanna go down to the western bay to leave with you
heading all the way right up to the stars
oh and don't you know you little fool
oh it's the planet of the blue

I wanna go down to the western bay to leave with you
reaching all the way rights up to the stars
oh and don't you know it's all for you
oh the planet of the blue
