Lyrics


Night, falls, and I'm alone

Skin, yeah, chilled me to the bone

You, turned and you ran,

Oh yeah

Oh slipped, right from my hand


[Chorus:]

Hey

Blue on black

Tears on a river

Push on a shove

It don't mean much

Joker on jack

Match on a fire

Cold on ice

A dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream

Doesn't change a thing

Don't bring you back

Blue on black

Oh yeah, blue on black


Blind, oh, now i see

Truth, lies, and in between

Wrong, cant be undone

Oh slipped, from the tip of

Your tongue


[Chorus:]

Hey

Blue on black

Tears on a river

Push on a shove

It don't mean much

Joker on jack

Match on a fire

Cold on ice

A dead mans touch

Whisper on a scream

Doesn't change a thing

Doesn't bring you back, yeah

Blue on black

Oh, blue on black

Oh, yeah


[guitar solo]


[Chorus (2x):]

Blue on black

Tears on a river

Push on a shove

It don't mean much

Joker on jack

Match on a fire

Cold on ice

Is a dead man's touch

Whisper on a scream

Doesn't change a thing

Don't bring you back

Blue on black

Oh yeah, blue on black


Hey

Blue on black

Tears on a river

Push on a shove

It don't mean much

Joker on jack

Match on a fire

Cold on ice

Is a dead mans touch

Whisper on a scream

Doesn't change a thing

Doesn't bring you back

Blue on black

Oh, blue on black

Oh wha oh, blue on black

Oh, blue on black
