38 Special - Fade To Blue Lyrics

Faded curtain, faded moon, through a broken sky
Staring at a photograph, the ghost of you and I
Those were times, yeah, those were good times that we shared
We thought those nights would never end....

Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
I'm just a shadow on the highway..........Fade to Blue.

I hear you cryin' in your sleep
I can feel it 'cross the miles
Love unspoken runs so deep
Like the tears behind your smile
Those were times, yeah, those were hard times that we had
I'd even take them back again.....

[2nd Chorus]
Should've seen it comin', runnin' with a fallen angel
Livin' on a broken promise when the day is through
Tryin' to make a life for us, I only knew it my way
Another shadow on the highway.......Fade to Blue.

......I fade to...I fade to...I fade to blue
(Every night I fade to blue)

There'll be times, girl, there'll be good times on the way
I'll always be comin' back again.

[3rd Chorus]

    if REM or Nirvana had done this song, it would have been grammy nominated and played on the radio ad naseum

    but since one of the bests band in the world wrote it, it has been largely ignored
