When Lady Sings the Blues
by   Foxfire65

Late at night
Way beyond the twilight
In a sleepy-eyed town
While no one is wandering around
When the last petal falls from the bloom
She is alone dancing in her room
Billie's voice softly wafting on the air
She pours a glass for someone that is not there
The sad, sultry Blues begins to play
And Lady's body begins to sway
Clutching a pillow tight to her broken heart
Wishing it were her man while they are apart
Her tears fall repeatedly on her pillow
Swaying with it like a weeping willow
She dreams she is back in his arms
Lost in the magic of his charms
Looking up with her love-filled, dewy eyes
He is there kissing away the tears she cries
He sets her heart and body on fire
Fanning the flames higher and higher
The needle cues the end of Lady's song
Her eyes fly open and he is gone
He's the man of her dreams and she can't let go
He will always hold the key to her heart and soul
Lady's tears fall and she remembers back then
She picks up the needle and plays her song again
