Joe Bonamassa - Different Shades Of Blue Lyrics




The sun's been shinin' down on the day and night
Gettin' away with murder, livin' a lucky life
All good things finally come to an end
Hit ya like a train if you try to pretend
Everybody knows that she broke your heart
Everybody knows that it's been tearing you apart
The boat you've been sailin' on has sprung a leak
You won't admit, but it's down to make you weep

When you got nothing left to lose
Might sound good, but I'm not sure that's true
You carry the pain around and that's what sees you through
The different shades of blue

Tell by the way you hang your head
The way you cast your eyes and the things you haven't said
You've got the past ten years written on your face
Your whole damn life's been one big race
Everybody goes there whether they want to or not
Everybody starts to hold on to what they got
And start to settle in with the long haul?
Real life baby, oh you can't have it all

When you got nothing left to lose
Might sound good, but I'm not sure that's true
You carry the pain around and that's what sees you through
The different shades of blue

When you got nothing left to lose
Might sound good, but I'm not sure that's true
You carry the pain around and that's what sees you through
The different shades of blue

    THERES NO SUCH THING AS LUCK OR COINCIDENCE OR ACCIDENT OR RANDOM TRANSITIONS ITS ONLY THE DIRTY DEAL WITH THE DEVIL THEY SOLD THERE SOUL FOR PAPER AND 15 MINUTES OF FAME DONT GET ME WRONG I DONT MEAN JOE BONAMASSA JUST SOME OTHERS I KNOW

    Чувак необнакновенный. Ага. Играет как бог.

    Boris dzybal

    Я тоже с него тащусь.... Хотя мне уже 67

  5. Trisha crazy one

    I relate to this song . We all go through things that we don’t understand . Know one knows how we feel until you walk in the others shoes . Sometimes the pain is hard to handle not all people show their true feelings. We tend to hide our feelings after being hurt and betrayed by the one you love

    Joe be the man!

  21. Mark Webb

    The man is coming into his own......his experience has finally let his playing and vocals slow down to give time for his soul to catch up. There are nods of approval from prior journeymen who have walked his same path. The shoes have been filled.......

  22. Mark Gibbins

    Right up there 👌

    After all, I'm not the biggest fan of Bonamassa, but yet, this song has got me hooked up and kept me listening to him for quiet years, now.

    "Different Shades Of Blue"

    The sun's been shinin' down on the day and night

    Everybody knows that it's been tearing you apart
    The boat you've been sailin' on has sprung a leak
    You won't admit, but it's down to make you weep

    When you got nothing left to lose
    Might sound good, but I'm not sure that's true
    You carry the pain around and that's what sees you through
    The different shades of blue

    this deserves more views!

  91. TheYankeefly26

    Joe never ceases to amaze me, yet every time I listen to him I still feel that same feeling I felt the first time I heard him. This song is amazing from the vocals, lyrics and of course that unmistakable blissful whining of that guitar. Perfection.

    judith w

    i like only him whitout singer only him whith gitarre

    elena skrypnikova

    Agree 100 %

  94. Chrys Murray

    I'm a recent convert to Joe Bonamassa but am totally enraptured by him.  What a fantastic guitarist he is!

  95. William Comer

    WOW!  That is some of best blues-rock I've ever heard!  I listen to Santana and Eric Clapton often.  Well, they just gotta move over and let you share the Light!  I hadn't heard of you until on Facebook you invited me to receive a free song to my email.  So, I cleverly came over to YT my favorite channel on Earth!

  96. Gregory Aldrich

    The Guitar solos are pure Gary Moore, Thank You Joe. Nice tribute.

  97. Greg Kelley

    Friday Music!!!! Johanna covers this new song by Joe. God know I've carried the pain around for a lost love since 1990.

  98. David O

    goosebumps!
