A little funky, a little swing, this tune is both tradtional blues and a bit outside the box.

Sometime the end of a love affair comes out of the blue, and makes the whole world seem to change.
There's a circle round the sun,
There's a chill around my heart.
I'm standing here at high noon,
But still it's getting dark.
I read the letter she left me,
On the pillow that night.
She said she didn't want me,
We couldn't get it right.
I gave her all I had,
She wanted more than I could give.
She chewed me up,
And she spit me out,
But I'm still here.

There's a shadow on the moon,
There's a darkness in my mind.
I thought that I could see it all,
But now I see I'm blind.
I made a present of my heart,
But it wasn't quite enough.
Whatever else she needed,
She didn't want my love.
I gave her all I had,
She wanted more than I could give.
She chewed me up,
And she spit me out,
But I'm still here.

I'm leaving here today,
There's no use in hanging round.
There's nothing left to say,
That's not a waste of sound.
So touch me one more time,
Before you say good-bye.
Make me forget the pain,
Comfort me with lies.
I gave her all I had,
She wanted more than I could give.
She sucked me dry,
And she spit me out,
But I'm still here.
