I like to think of that crayon "blue-violet" when I think of this song. You know, the one that no one really wants to color with. - Sharlynn


We started out fast
We started out slow
And it figures that I'd be the last to know
That you were only playing a game
It wasn't my face you saw
Just a girl you once knew by a different name

And if your heart is really in this
I wish you'd find a way to show it

Cause I'm out on a line wondering which way to go
Caught between your violet skies
And your blue eyes
I'm feeling like indigo
With no one to call my home

You said that I am the light of the moon
The light of the sun
And I'm the place from which all your good things come
And you said you don't want to see me cry
You just can't bear to say goodbye before I do

So if your heart is really in this
Could you find a way to let me know it

I'm tired of the meaningless words you say
We're perfect and broken in one fucked up day
