A naked, melancholy late night song. A love has reached its end and he's wise enough to know it's time to call it a day and big enough to let go gracefully. Vocals, C tuned guitar and harmonica. From Mark's forthcoming solo album.


Well baby, I won't make fuss, you know that ain't my style
To be honest I've seen this coming now
For a little while
We do what we do and we don't what we don't
Mostly for good reasons
The whys and the wherefores
They change with the seasons
And the way I react
Well, that's something I choose
So don't worry, I'll be fine
You haven't left me with the blues

We know that it's broken and it won't be fixed
Lord knows we tried and we tried and we tried
But whatever we do, it just won't stick
So head on towards the sunshine
You've spent too long in the cold
We're not doing anything
But sitting round and getting old
So I'll move out - it is your house
There'll be more room for your shoes
And I know that you're in love with him
So you won't be feeling hurt with the blues

When we started out the grass was green, the sun was shining bright
We'd laugh and sing, do everything
Didn't need to sleep at night
But things they fray, inch by inch
Come apart along the seams
And slowly but surely
We started having different dreams
Now we hardly talk and we never kiss
Inside we've blown a fuse
So you're right to leave, we've had our day
All we have together is the blues
