Everyone tells me I'm lucky,
Got my whole life to live yet;
I can't say they're wrong,
The nights are so long living inside of my head.
Maybe I'll get some relief now,
Now that my things are all gone;
I won't sit here staring at nothing all night,
Won't be bleary-eyed greeting the dawn.

Oh, oh, oh, alright, I miss you tonight,
Though I'm not really sure what to say;
It keeps rolling in like a slow-moving train,
It gets harder and harder each day.
And each time I think that the worst of it's through,
I'm stopped in my tracks by some vision of you;
And alright, I miss you tonight,
I admit that I'm falling down blue.

And she lived outside of the city,
On days when I'd visit her there;
I'd watch her dancing all lit by the moon,
The cool wind of time in her hair.
And then we'd go driving for hours,
We'd turn off the lights and just glide;
Moving like spirits along through the night,
The light through the trees as our guide.

Oh, oh, oh, alright, I miss you tonight,
Though I'm not really sure what to say;
It keeps rolling in like a slow-moving train,
It gets harder and harder each day.
And each time I think that the worst of it's through,
I'm stopped in my tracks by some vision of you;
And alright, I miss you tonight,
I admit that I'm falling down blue.

Oh, well, alright, I miss you tonight,
Though I'm not really sure what to say;
It keeps rolling in like a slow-moving train,
It gets harder and harder each day.
And each time I think that the worst of it's through,
I'm stopped in my tracks by some vision of you;
And alright, I miss you tonight,
I admit that I'm falling down blue.

I'm falling down blue; I'm falling down blue;
I admit that I'm falling down blue.
