From the Café Nordo show Sauced.


Day into night
Just another night
I always said I wanted some time to myself

My mind is blue
A dark and heavy blue
I’ll just imagine I see the stars shining through

But now it’s the end of the line
No moon in sight, just a light fall shower
In my mind it’s always the violet hour

Have you forgotten
That stolen afternoon
The sun was streaming through all that smoke in the room

You said you loved me
And I was not surprised
You blew your cover with that look in your eyes

But now it’s the end of the line
What good is sweet without a little sour
In my mind it’s always the violet hour

I should’ve known a happy ending
Was not in the stars, at least not for you and me
But I thought we could be the
Exception to the rule
I know I’m a fool

Pour another round
Just one more sip
I’ve always loved the feel of a glass on my lips

We almost made it
Just you and I
We almost had our chance to touch the sky

But now it’s the end of the line
Do we resign, or just keep on dreaming
In my mind it’s always the violet hour
