Blue (Matthews/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the album version. Other versions: Donna's 4-track demo, John Peel.

Donna: "Not about anything really. I take lines from magazines and put them together according to my mood, trying to give the feel of whatever the vibe is at the moment. Why magazines? Journalists use more interesting words in expressing meaning than I do in day-to-day language."


john's gone his senses loaded over by your house,
you know, it's so basic

one two three four

john's gone his senses loaded
over by your house
it's so basic
i think you're faking
have a good time
but don't get into my head
do you recommend I wait a while
direct and live or keep it
constant
and selective blue

i can read your mind
if you want to
i will let you blue
i can read your mind
if you want to
i will let you

john's gone he needs attention
do you understand
his inclination?
i've seen you shaking
come down here
and i'll show you the wrong way
try to rearrange this tired old line
connect this smile and keep it
standard
and reflective blue

i can read your mind
if you want to
i will let you blue
i can read your mind
i will let you
if you want to
