Blue Dahlia
The Gaslight Anthem

What a hot and sultry summer,

The steam just slides up off them streets

You got to stay inside and wait for the night,

And then come on over and see me

There's a poetry about these streets,

It just slips from your skin and goes right underneath

And mama always knew I'd meet a girl like you,

But me, I never believed


Cuz I've been so lonely I can't imagine that kind of sympathy [x2]


Where'd you get them scars?

How blue is your heart?

Is it sad enough to break?

She said, "it's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?

Was it cold and strange like mine?

Are you man enough to lay here?

She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"


I had a dream about you once, and I could barely see your form

And I met you between the wax and the needle,

In the words of my favorite song

Your black hair was like a raven with your tan skin on the beach

Your backdrop were the auroras and my sidekick was all this grief

I've been so low down, I'm almost level with the ground


Where'd you get them scars?

How blue is your heart?

Is it sad enough to break?

She said "it's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?

Was it cold and strange like mine?

Are you man enough to lay here?

She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"


Did they take you to the carnival to get locked up on a ride?

Me, I got caught up with the fortuen tellers

And the ladies with the sleepy eyes

It took years my baby just to come clean,

Every streetlight a reminder

And all those apologies

And the night was lonely next to me

Even the night was lonely next to me


Where'd you get them scars?

How blue is your heart?

Is it sad enough to break?

She said "it's sad enough to break"

How long was your life?

Was it cold and strange like mine?

Are you man enough to lay here?

She said, "I'm man enough my baby, come see about me"

Come see about me, ah-ah

Come see about me,

Come see about me,

Come see about me, ah-ah

Come see about me, ah-ah

Whenever you're lonely
