Lyrics


Blue Silhouette

(Polly Edwards)

(Click here to see it on YouTube!)

This is a song about getting stuck in one place, and being torn between wanting to move on, and wanting to stay there. I wrote this just before I moved to Charlottetown in 2005.

I'm a photograph, classy and still
But I know more than you ever will
There's a shadow on our favourite tree
And you're saying crazy things to me

Polly

I'm a cut-out, a blue silhouette
Dancing on stage to a million in debt
There's a song, there's a song
Gets stuck in my head
It's only a headache
I'll just go back to bed

And I'm going, and I'm going
Yeah, I swear I'm going someday
And I'm happy, and I'm happy
Yeah, I swear I'm happier this way

So while I sing 'til my fingers lose feeling
You're the old broken mirror on the ceiling
Cracked reflection of all that is dead
And you seem to be saying everything I once said

And I'm going, and I'm going, I'm going
I'm going someday
And I'm happy, and I'm happy, I'm happy
(I'm going to be happy)
I swear I'm happier this way
'Cause I'm going someday

I'm a cut-out, a blue silhouette
Dancing on stage to a song in my head
