Music and vocals/ JAPOV Lyrics Carroll Kiphen

The bluest blue
Verse 1
I lived next door to a girl who always wore old jeans.
She was young and shy but pretty; just barely in her teens.
Sometimes she seemed so sad that it made me want to cry.
I tried to be a friend to her but I couldn’t ask her why;
Chorus
She would turn the bluest blue my eyes had ever seen
and walk out to her backyard and climb up in her tree.
Verse 2
She’d softly sing the saddest songs that I had ever heard
high up in the branches like some fragile little bird.
Sometimes she’d take a shower a dozen times a day
but she couldn’t seem to wash the stain of it away.
Chorus
And she would turn the bluest blue my eyes had ever seen
and walk out to her backyard and climb up in her tree.
Verse 3
The scars upon her tiny wrists never seemed to fade;
memories that she opened up with a razorblade.
As she bled she’d clean it up so daddy wouldn’t know.
She’d wear a long red sweater so it wouldn’t show.
Chorus
And she would turn the bluest blue my eyes had ever seen
and walk out to her backyard and climb up in her tree.
Verse 4
She’d find herself a refuge from her father and his lust.
The reason that she’d never love or even learn to trust.
She knew she was his hostage no matter how she tried;
haunted by the guilt of it she’d hold the pain inside.
Verse 5
I went to find her one morning. I knew just where she’d be;
so I went out to her backyard and she was high up in her tree
and she had turned the bluest blue my eyes had ever seen,
safely in eternal rest hanging from her tree.
