Rosanne Cash – Blue Moon With Heartache Lyrics

Blue moon out my window, guess this means goodnight
And you come in and start right in not treating me right
Misery is a ball and all its company
I’ll play the victim for you honey, but not for free

I run into that heartache just like a wall
And act like nothing happened to me, nothing at all
Lately I’m amazed at how blind we can be
Lately even dreaming feels like old reality

What would I give to be a diamond in your eyes again
What would I give to bring back those old times
What did I say to make your cold heart bleed this way
Maybe I’ll just go away today

And I don’t care who’s waiting at my front door
You know that life don’t hold no glamour anymore
Oh, how can it all look so right and feel so wrong
I’ll play the victim for you honey, but not for long

What would I give to be a diamond in your eyes again
What would I give to bring back those old times
What did I say to make your past turn out this way
Maybe I’ll just go away today
Maybe I’ll just go away
Maybe I’ll just go away
Maybe I’ll just go away to stay
Maybe I’ll just go away
Maybe I’ll just go away
Maybe I’ll just go away
