BLUE JEAN BOY

.
.
BLUE JEAN BOY

all those words
in your head-
why were they
never said?
you weren’t sure,
is that why-
were you just
far too shy?

now she’ll never
get to know
of the love
you didn’t show:
of the thoughts
kept inside,
feelings you
tried to hide-

yet, you lived
for those nights
when you’d be
by her side-
there was no
greater joy
than those nights
that she called you
her blue jean boy…

blue jean boy,
you’re playing a game-
but you don’t know the rules
and you don’t know the name;
blue jean boy,
you were just her toy-
still you remember those nights
she called you
her blue jean boy…

do you miss her
now she’s gone-
does your song
go on and on?
did she only
hurt your pride-
does your pain
go deep inside?

will you say
another word-
is there no more
to be heard?
and though you know
you couldn’t win,
would you do
the same again?

yet, you lived
for those nights
when you’d be
by her side-
there was no
greater joy
than those nights
that she called you
her blue jean boy…

blue jean boy,
you’re playing a game-
but you don’t know the rules
and you don’t know the name;
blue jean boy,
you were just her toy-
still you treasure those nights
she called you
her blue jean boy… .

this one touched me because you have expressed true uncondtional love through "Blue Jean Boy"...the Title is also very approroate because it creates the image of an adolescent youth smitten by love or infatuation...it also has a very lilting feel ///

loved it...

Thanks for the read and for listening. This song was in fact written thirty two years ago, so yes, I guess I sort of did qualify for "adolescent youth" myself. And young love was very much in the air!

Glad you liked it.

What can I say? Thank you for listening to this one: I am pleased it touched you in both written and sung form.
Music has been my passion since I was quite young, and I am happy it shows in some of my work.
Thank you again

Sometimes it is best to have kept those thoughts and feelings from the person. especially in this case where you found you were just her toy. I know I would have felt that way. (saving pride is my downfall)

You have the most mesmerizing voice. It is a pleasure to listen to.

always, cat

When you fling poo, some of the stink sticks to you!

Thank you for your very kind remarks. I am flattered.
But also very pleased you enjoyed listening to this.

This was about being on the cusp of shyness and falling in love... and a few other things...

Thank you for listening.
