Cara, Alessia - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues Lyrics




Don't wish it away
Don't look at it like it's forever
Between you and me I could honestly say
That things could only get better
And while I'm away
Dust out the demons inside
And it won't be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I'm your man

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
Oh more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself
Oh, oh

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Wait on me girl
And cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I life life itself, yeah

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Cara, Alessia I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues Comments
  1. Michael L.

    Way better than Ellie Goulding’s Elton John cover! 👍👍👍

  5. Tim Latza

    I was disappointed with most of the tracks on this album, then Alessia KILT THAT SHIT!!

  6. Joseph Parrish

    A lot of singers just hit the notes, but she "acts" the song very well too. That's why this is good.

  7. greg55666

    This is what happens when you want to do something different but you don't really have anything original to say.

  8. 왈 왈

    I really really really really love you

  9. Ianna Williams

    Alright. I'm all for covering songs, but this (to me at least, you can like it) is just another bland song of the current era. However, it's even worse than that since its *Elton John.* To me, Elton John's songs need to be covered in one of two ways: be as faithful as possible, or put a unique spin on the song. This is just taking the lyrics to I guess that's why they call it the blues and putting them to current slow modern song track No. 535. The vocals don't even come close to matching the emotion of the original, it's just emotionless fluff with no weight. The original had vocals that made the song sound unique and somewhat melancholy. This is just modern guff trying to be the blues, when it can't, making me wonder why this artist would even do this.

    Again, this is just my opinion, and I honestly came into this hoping it be good for me, but nope. You can like it, don't think I'm bashing anyone who likes it, I just... hate it, you know?

    Icy Fire

    TheMariostarr i kinda agree

  20. Apenas uma Army *Multifandom*

    Maravilhosa

  21. little pinkie

    I loaf this song

  22. Fashion Fab

    I really want a backing track for this

  23. Geon Ko

    Her voice is freaking amazing♥

  24. eCoderIE

    who came here from how i met your mother?

  25. EDD_HighTimes!!!

    Naaa dont do it for me. Too dreary!

  26. Genessis Rodriguez

    Elton brought me here but her voice is beautiful!! :)

  27. Fingers Crossed

    He original was great. Alessia Cara's version is just as good. It takes a lot to make a new version of a great song ur own, but equal to the original. She's great!

  28. Valou Izbak

    Beautiful voice and great interpretation
    She gives life to the song
    She transmets emotion💘
    one of the best of her generation bravo👍

  29. Lakshana

    she deserves so much more relevancy than what she usually gets she’s still underrated

  30. Joshua Leboeuf

    I come close to weeping when hearing your voice. Stay true to yourself and don't let this world take this real sound and music from you. You've got something they don't.

  31. Kiara Tanner

    Love singing this song it's gotta jazzy rhythm.

  32. Sora NioStaur

    I SHALL LISTEN TO THIS EVERY DAY UNTIL II GO DEAF OMFG THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL !!

  33. Jammea Smith

    She has such a beautiful soul and voice😊💕 I love her so much 😭

  34. Paul Phillips

    What a no talent hack. She completely butchers the original.

    VR REAL O

    Paul Phillips i think its funny seeing elton john fans bash every artist on this album

    Icy Fire

    VR REAL O you know, people can dislike the music without being Elton fans

    Emily Joy

    No talent hack? Well if that's what she is, then what are you? Something much worse. Get a life, dumb bimbo

  35. Sonia Ramirez

    I can’t stop listening to this song 😍😍😍

  36. Megan Hamilton

    Don't wish it away
    Don't look at it like it's forever
    Between you and me I could honestly say
    That things can only get better

    And while I'm away
    Dust out the demons inside
    And it won't be long before you and me run
    To the place in our hearts where we hide

    And I guess that's why they call it the blues
    Time on my hands could be time spent with you
    Laughing like children, living like lovers
    Rolling like thunder under the covers
    And I guess that's why they call it the blues

    Just stare into space
    Picture my face in your hands
    Live for each second without hesitation
    And never forget I'm your man

    Wait on me girl
    Cry in the night if it helps
    But more than ever I simply love you
    More than I love life itself
