Townsend, Devin - Sky Blue Lyrics




I thought you might have wanted my heart
You taste it, I fall and writhe
In my life I've gone over, you were right
In my life this will never go away

Do what you want to, all will haunt you
All is water, all I wanted
You have got to, not want to...got to
All is water, all is life!

Down on my own
The paralyzing friction was love again
Set on my own
The wheels are now ready to roll

And I know you're sleeping tonight
And I hope you're dreaming of light
I thought you might have wanted my high
You taste it, I fall and writhe

In my life I've gone over, you were right
In my life this will never go away

Down on my own
I'm paralyzed, afflicted by love and death
Set on my own
The muse is not ready to roll

And I know you're sleeping tonight
And I hope you're dreaming of light

Have you found a way?
'Cause you and I remain
And, oh, my god, it's too late to pray

Say the word!

Down on my own
I'm paralyzed, afflicted by love and death
Set on my own
The muse is now ready to roll

And I know you're sleeping tonight (I have a fight and I have a right of way)
And I hope you're dreaming of light (I have a fight and I have a right of way)
And I know you're sleeping tonight (I have a fight and I have a right of way)
And I hope you're dreaming of me

If I knew your words, in through your mind, silently

Townsend, Devin Sky Blue Comments
  1. Sarcom Sarpedon

    I've listened to all his albums i've been 3 times on his concerts . And he is so fucking unique , everything he does is pure fucking gold
    Makes me rethink everything i ever did as a musician , and i get depressed because of it , but than i listen some more songs from him and i am good again ! Pure fucking gold . Heavy Devy does it best ! fucking love the guy

  2. Vanderson Junior

    Cause baby tonight, the dj' got us falling in love again

  3. Shit Multiverse

    Poozers, aw man

  4. Martin Dionne

    What a great and fantastic song !!!!

  5. Danny B.

    What a sleeper of an album! I think it may be my favorite DTP record. ANNEKE!!!

  6. Brandon Erickson

    Who is here from Strapping Young Lad?

  7. S&T Young

    Just discovered Devin.. blown away

  8. Heyitsbacon

    This song has so much meaning to me right now.

  9. Justin Bruno

    I still remember the adverts between vids " hey this is Devin check out my cover on Usher's latest song with my latest spin on things"

  10. Big Funi

    If only more pop songs could sound like this. Oof

    Shit Multiverse

    funny thing is that for how much pop it sounds to us used to metal, for people who listen to pop this is too intense, i tryied getting some people who are into pop into Devin's pop stuff, but they just can't

  11. crybabycult 666

    Some of my favorite vocals of his. My favorite track of his.

  12. Julian Hansen

    The sort of song that just fills you up with so much joy and energy. Universal Flame is another one. Its pop metal at its best! Sky Blue is actually better than Epiccloud and Addicted imo, atleast on par with those.

  13. magic warrior

    Definition of perfection

  14. Ash Green

    Best anime outro.

  15. PointBlankRangeRover

    Yet somehow Devin Townsend isn't a top 40 artist?

    Nicholas Romig

    I don't think he has any great aspirations of being a top 40 musician.

  16. Donnie Dollarhide Jr.

    This song is amazing

  17. MrOpera53

    That "DJ got us falling in love" song was so annoying but Devin makes the tune actually sound awesome! They really should be putting this on the radio instead!

  18. DreamWarriorSleeps

    I came here from a google search for sky blue images. Not bad

    Sellisa

    Devin is awesome. You should also check out his side project Casualties of Cool. Its like a cross between blue grass and pink floyd.

    Josh Grooves

    There is no wrong way to discover Devin :)

    Rowan Badhwar

    such an awesome way to stumble across Devin!

    Gary Tackett

    Welcome to the Townsend fan family.. Strap in because it's an amazing ride!

    Maester Gryphon

    Lol that's a unique story, i can relate to discovering awesome things in a similarly trivial random way.

  19. WOLF STAR

    I wonder if Usher has heard this? Don't think so though.

  20. Blake Fedorenko

    Nice 👍

  21. Maria Cecilia Perez Thomsen

    I love this song! the way this song ends it's magicall! <3 I love Devin! so much!

  22. MoonJellyGames

    "Baby, tonight the DJ's got us falling in love again"

    Sorry everybody.

    ludewigs

    +jesterrace064 why sorry?

    MoonJellyGames

    +ludewigs As soon as I pinned it, I started to hear *that* song every time I hear Sky Blue's chorus. It takes a tiny bit of the awesome away.

    Cassio Ludewigs

    +jesterrace064 but it's not by accident. Devin made it on purpose and even credits the original, so I guess it doesn't take anything away :)

    MoonJellyGames

    Really?  Haha that's crazy.  Alright, well I guess that's that. 

    Maester Gryphon

    Lol. It cant be helped.

  23. kitteechaos

    I swear Devin can take any style of music and make it sound fucking amazing. He is not human. He is god like. lol

    I REALLY AM BIGGIE SMALLS IN A TRAIN!! HELP!!!

    kitteechaos perhaps he is more human than all of us.

    Alex McVeigh

    You poetic little shit Biggie

  24. kief4diamonds

    i love how Anneke sounds a lot like, Stevie Nix in this song.

  25. Greg!

    How the song ends in the key's major note. Perfection. Devin is a fucking god!

  26. BenFoe Pee

    http://vjetropev.blogspot.com/2014/03/devin-townsend-ultimate-guide_15.html A very detailed guide for all those eager to get acquainted with Devin's amazing discography.

    Perry Daniels

    hats off to you sir.....top posting :D........ there is also a full FLAC listing too....buggered if i can put my fingers on it now tho.

  27. SAagreedSA

    I never don't want to listen to Devy :) Thank everything we have artists like him to appreciate in this strange walk through.

  28. Anything2bCool

    Annekes slightly melancholy vocals on this song sound so good

  29. Ryan F

    Can you upload "The Ones Who Love" please?

    Lijnse

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwnkIcKS4zI never heard this one ;-)

  30. Zain Shaikh

    Coz baby tonight, the dj got us falling in love again!..😂😂 #busted !

    Drn Montemayor

    But how can he be busted if he did it on purpose, and credits the original?

    kitteechaos

    +Zain Shaikh Maybe so but Devin did it 1000 times better...lol

  31. C C

    Is this supposed to sound like that Usher song "Dj Got Us Falllin In Love Again"?

    Alex Mannings

    Yeah, Devin said it was inspired by that song. Personally, I think it's a great thing he's influenced by such a diverse pool of music.

    C C

    @Alex Mannings Agreed

    LordArithon

    @Alex Mannings Yeah dude, totally agree with you. In some ways Pop has things to offer. The vocal hooks are wonderful at times. The fact that he used the hook from the Usher song is fantastic. It's a great hook, and I love that he took a good pop song and made amazing in his Devin Townsend way.

    xGoth_Monsterx

    @Cara Bostrom Cadman yes it supposed to lol

    Imperatore Gor

    I actually think recent pop has taken a lot of ideas from Hard rock and heavy, so it is some kind of crossed fertilization.

  32. Steve Angeloro

    http://youtu.be/FLbC0dRIjX0?t=1m5s
    cause i never, knew love like this before, opened my eyes, cause i never, NEVER, knew love like this before, what a surprize, never knew hooooo, never knew hooooo

  33. OmegaLuma

    Only Devy can make Pop sound relevant.

    vargasaaron26

    relevant to what? lol the whole nature of pop is that it IS relevant....as far as I know "devy" isn't that relevant outside of primarily only a certain section of the metal scene....
    what a cliche comment...

    Artistical

    +vargasisking Bit of necroposting, but I think incinerator meant pop in a not-so overtly plastic and commercial way. Pop is interchangeable now more than ever, and Townsend can make mellow, soft melodies by which pop is known feel true again. There are pop artists who can do that too, but it's odd that Devin can do such good pop given his background.

    Artistical

    Yeah, I know :) But I factor in the change of lyrics and the instrumental complexity. Makes a pop melody sound better (because now almost everything is overproduced synth tunes)

    Sellisa

    Yet they won't play him on the radio...

  34. arrrrggghhh

    I can't stop listening to this song. It keeps me so calm, and happy. Thank you Devin. <3

  35. Tim Blaisdell

    I love when Devin does shit like this. Like with Praise The Lowered that song and this one are so unique which makes them that much more amazing. The man's a genius.

    Garett Geho

    I agree! I love this song, and Praise the Lowered is soooooooooooo gooooooooooood.
