I wonder who's sleeping in your sheets tonight
Whose head rests upon the bed
Could it be a close friend I knew so well
Who seems to be so close to you instead
Close to you instead

I'm blue tonight, I'm red when I'm mad
I'm green when I'm jealous, yellow when I'm sad
I guess I cannot have everything
So much has flown between the years
When I was twenty and you were seventeen

So out of choice I chose rock and roll
But it pushed me to the limit everyday
It turned me into a gypsy, kept me away from home
From there on, there seemed no use for you
For you to stay

And if I shower 'round 3 a.m.
It's just to wash a- way
The trace of a love un-wanted
Oh in the times I went astray
The times I went astray

(CHORUS)

(INSTRUMENTAL)

I'm blue tonight, I'm red when I'm mad
I'm green when I'm jealous, yellow when I'm sad
I guess I cannot have everything
So much has flown between the years
When I was twenty and you were seventeen

Oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
Oh, oh,
So much has flown between the years
When I was twenty and you were seventeen
(REPEAT 2x)
