The Captain's Blues (a/k/a Blues in A)
(Thank you, China Dahl)

It's raining hard in Shanghai
in Montreal the weather's fair
Portraits of lovers on the bureau
rose-colored satin on a chair
Now somewhere someone's singing
about a love that's been untrue
The sheets feel cool, but your fragrance lingers still . . .
I'm thinking of you.

I start the coffee, you start the shower
We start our exile from the night
I do my makeup while you're shaving
We ask each other "Do I look all right?"
The objects in the mirror
are not as close as they appear
And the distance from the mailbox to the moon . . .
seems closer than you.

CHORUS:
Walk or stay - there's still a price to pay
And what is lost - can it be worth the cost?
There's one rule in life about those things that you want
You either get your heart's desire
or the reasons you don't, uh huh.

We make attempts to reach each other
Like we do crosswords in the news
My word is righteous, yours is prideful
The more we're winning, the more we lose
The clock is ticking, the theme is playing
The sand is running through the glass
Have our contestants learned a damn thing from their past?
Don't answer too fast.

CHORUS:
Walk or stay - there's still a price to pay
And what is lost - can we afford the cost?
There's one rule in life about those things that you want
You either get your heart's desire
or the reasons you don't, uh huh
