Original Version 4:05

I got to get a message through
I don’t know where we’re going
I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders
Take cover for the night

I see you in the morning rain
Oh step inside and lay beside me
Tender can you close my eyes and blind me
Oh give me just a smile

Before I fade to silver, silver blue for you
Before I fade to silver, silver blue for you

I’ve turned into the broken one
Who lost the inspiration
I want to give you all my love
Like water to a blood red rose

The passion, I can’t deal with her
The pain, well I can do without him
And this is like the milky way
An ocean that only grows and grows

And babe I fade to silver, silver blue for you
I turn and fade to silver, silver blue for you

And babe I fade to silver, silver blue for you
I turn and fade to silver, silver blue
I wrap my arms around your naked shoulders
Take cover for the night

And babe I fade to silver, silver blue for you
I turn and fade to silver, silver blue for you

And babe I fade to silver, silver blue for you, oh yeah
I turn and fade to silver, silver blue
