learnin’ the blues lyrics – katie melua

the tables are empty – the dance floor’s deserted
you play the same love song – it’s the tenth time you’ve heard it
that’s the beginning – just one of the clues
you’ve had your first lesson – in learnin’ the blues

the cigarettes you light – one after the other
won’t help you forget him – when you’re losing your lover
you’re only burning – a torch you can’t lose
but you’re on the right track – for learnin’ the blues

when you’re out in a crowd, the blues will taunt you – constantly
when you’re out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory

the nights when you don’t sleep – the whole night you’re crying
but you cannot forget him – soon you even stop trying
you’ll walk the floor – and wear out your shoes
when you feel your heart break – you’re learnin’ the blues
