King Blue, that's what she called me long ago
When the sun shone warm and the waters ran deep and cold
And love was but a game

King Blue, you fool
You knew her love was bound to die
That the sun would hide behind the clouds
And the rivers run dry
Your life is your hands

Oh, King Blue
Where are you going to?
What will you do with your life?

Pushed aside
Just like a flower cut down in the rain
You could never go back there again
You'd only be refused

There's no way
To return what is past
Some are first, some are destined last
You cannot help but lose

Oh, King Blue
Where are you going to?
What will you do with your life?
