Noodling around with this for nearly a year before I sat down and started writing lyrics and got a hook and went for it....thinking this might end up jazzy; sax; piano; bass; percussion; congas; tympani (quietly), low in the mix keyboards or a hint of concertina, harmonium, or accordion (French sounding)....lush harmonies...not quite haunting and maybe ocean waves in the fade....

Lyrics

"Blue World"
Music and lyrics (3/B): (c) Rick Landers 2023

She said she was leaving
in a sing song C'est la vie
I found a hidden note from Moulin Rouge
in Gay Paree
She said she'd live in France, work the bars
and high kick dance
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue world (2x)

She said we'd run our course
our love's in disrepair
She needed time alone
Maybe just a year
I told her I'd follow
She said, "No, one must surely stay."
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue world (2x)
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue world

(Instrumental Break)

I wrote a thousand letters
How I didn't understand
How I hadn't realized I'd been dealt
a trouble hand
I never heard a word
Her voice cold frozen true
so much for a girl...a girl so blue
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue world (2x)
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue world

She finally came back home
speaking in a foreign tongue
She surrounds me in a blanket
Our trinity now safe and warm
Her transatlantic voyage was so long and douloureux
She smiles gives me a kiss
She says forever we will do
Gives me a kiss
Smiles, a rhapsody in blue
It's a blue blue blue blue world (2x)
It's a blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue, blue world (fade out)
