lyrics

on blue mountain
atop the black diamond
surrounded by white highlands
cheeks swelled pink and eyes red
we puffed green for courage instead

we carved like it was turkey dinner
fearless that we be delivered
to the bottom safe and sound
and where are you now?

it’s getting cold as it gets dark
and the floodlights are down
they’re closing up the park for the night
you’re nowhere in site

the colours you showed me
have all turned to shades of grey
i’m living life, but only living it day to day

on blue mountain
atop the black diamond
we shared a moment locked in time
like a thief in the night high on life
and so many years we paid the price

it’s getting cold as it gets dark
and the curtains are drawn
they’re closing up the house for the season
have I got any more reason to stick around here?

the colours you showed me
have all turned to shades of grey
i’m living life but only day to day
