Blue Moon

As I saw this lovely neon sign,
I wondered how it would photograph,
and I spent the evening with a melancholy (blue) tune playing in my mind.
Blue moon,
You saw me standing alone,
Without a dream in my heart,
Without a love of my own.
Blue moon,
You knew just what Iwas there for.
You heard me saying a pray for
Someone I really could care for.

Maybe the moon is made out of blue cheese.

Once I tried out as a singer for a jazz quartet, sang Blue Moon. I do like that blue tune.

i was reminded of Brooks and Dunn's "neon moon" song when i saw your post tile and the pic and then your words...

am copying and pasting the lyrics here for you

When the sun goes down
On my side of town
That lonesome feeling
Comes to my door
The whole world turns blue

Theres a rundown bar
Cross the railroad tracks
Ive got a table for two
Way in the back
Where I sit alone
And think of losing you

I spend most every night
Beneath the light
Of this neon moon

If you lose your one and only
Theres always room here for
The lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

I think of two young lovers
Running wild and free
I close my eyes
And sometimes see
You in the shadows
Of this smoke-filled room

No telling how many tears
Ive sat here and cried
Or how many lies
That Ive lied
Telling my poor heart
Shell come back someday
Oh, but Ill be alright
As long as theres light
From a neon moon

If you lose your one and only
Theres always room here for
The lonely
To watch your broken dreams
Dance in and out of the beams
Of a neon moon

The jukebox plays on
Drink by drink
The words of every sad song
Seem to say what I think
This hurt inside of me
Aint never gonna end

Oh, but Ill be alright
As long as theres light
From a neon moon
