Heartfelt song about heartache and moving on. The intro slide guitar is very reminiscent of George Harrison. This song has a bit of a bluegrass feel and the addition of the resonator gives it the right shade of blue!

Lyrics

That’s Why We’re Blue

V1
Blue glass jars still on the shelf
In the closet your wedding dress still hangs
Jewelry box and your perfume
Not sure just what to do with your things
Been 3 years or maybe more since
you walked out that oak front door to leave
A picket fence and my last name
Ain’t all it takes to hide the pain you feel

CH
That’s why we’re blue ain’t it a shame
We ended up here all the same
Just like our folks we made the same mistakes
Is this the price for letting go?
It feels like rain upon my soul
I know, I know, I know you feel it too
That’s why we’re blue

V2
Packed the Christmas plates for you
I just sold the bedroom suit today
Did you think it would end like this
Pawning all our wedding gifts away?
Mourn the loss, embrace the change
Paint the walls and rearrange the chairs
I won’t forget we’re both to blame
I hope our kids will break the chain we bear

BRIDGE
They say it’s like a death
But we’re both still alive
Maybe that’s the reason why

CH
That’s why we’re blue ain’t it a shame
We ended up here all the same
Like mom and dad we made the same mistakes
Is this the price for letting go?
It feels like rain upon my soul
I know, I know, you’ve got to feel it too
That’s why we’re blue
