Lyrics:
I'm only blue, she said, because I'm choking
On air gone bad from stale jokes and
I'm only blue because I'm tired of living
But I don't want to die, I'm only blue

If only you, she said, could see things clearly
You'd hate me too, you wouldn't come near me
If only you were what I needed
Still I'm glad to have a friend, if only you

I'll take what I can get
I'll take what I can get these days

Great! Shades of dark and light in the lyrics. Nice git-tars, tho the slide was hiding way back there in the mix, wouldn't mind hearing more of that. Nice croaking country vibe to the voice... sounds like you just killed a pack of smokes. Quite enjoyed it.

nice one, but yes that slide needs to be brought up a little bit more.

very nice laid back, but nonetheless lyrically twisted song. i think, the Slide is well placed in the back and: i :love: the voice.

Love it ...
we don't hear enough of your vocals, Dan ... let's have more.
Agree with the others about the slide.

:wink:

Cool thing ! I like the half-sad country vibe.
Good vocal performance, that's very appropriate for the goal.

Cheers

This is cool! It has a human feel that allows the song to breath..

This track was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't expecting Mr. Cash to show up but good thing he did :)
Really soulful. Amazing song!
