Darker Shade of Blue

Well, I’ve tried to make it right with you
And you tend to pick a fight nightly
It’s a vicious pattern and problematic
This isn’t the way love’s supposed to be

They say opposites attract & go together
Like the sandy shore & temperamental sea
Well you’ve been like those big ol’ waves
Relentlessly crashing and crushing me

And I’m not sure if you even realize it
I don’t know if what I say, you’ll believe
Hope this song delivers you a message
Hope it can be listened to & well received
Hope you’re not upset at what I’m singin’
Hope you know I don’t wanna hurt you
But I can’t live like this much longer
I’m thinkin’ that this love isn’t true
After all, sand never changes its color
No, sand never changes it’s color
From tan to a darker shade of blue
From tan to a darker shade of blue

I’d rather be the one appreciating the view
As I sit and watch each wave you make
I’d cheer on every surfer riding inside you
I just know I can’t handle your angry break

I know your tides change with the seasons
I know some of your waves are fun to ride
But just as surfers need pizza, I need lovin’
God knows we both have honestly tried

And I’m not sure if you even realize it
I don’t know if what I say, you’ll believe
Hope this song delivers you a message
Hope it can be listened to & well received
Hope you’re not upset at what I’m singin’
Hope you know I don’t wanna hurt you
But I know we can’t live like this forever
I’m thinkin’ that this love isn’t true
After all, sand never changes its color
No, sand never changes its color
From tan to a darker shade of blue
From tan to a darker shade of blue.

  1. Just to let you know.
    My name is Tirk Wilder. I am a 3-time BMI Award-winning songwriter. I wrote the theme song for the CBS TV Series, “Walker, Texas Ranger”.
    My first CD was released 18 years ago. The second song on it is a jazz song by the name of “Darker Shade of Blue”.
    You can’t copyright a title. This is just an FYI notice.
    But I don’t I didn’t steal your title. The song is over 25 years old, and was registered 2 decades ago.
    Just so’s you know…
