Blue Hour
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: John Popper, Chan Kinchla

I too have chased those clouds through bitter rain
Determined that their dream remain
I've gone about as far as I can reach
But they continue well beyond the beach
Endlessly going they drift out to sea
I wish they'd mock me but they took no notice of me
Disappearing past the horizon
The constant hope of every pirate and indian

And I'm left down here to perish in the blue hour
Where the better angels dare to dream to come true
Through the halls their wings rumble, I feel their power
And I know for a fact that heaven is blue
And I know for a fact that heaven
...is blue

A rusty bar and a steering wheel
One was my lance and one was my shield
Atop a wooden horse I'd make my ride
Desperate to make it to the other side
Within the broken toys there is a place
Lost and enchanged and I can almost see its face
Like Don Quixote or more Ponce de Leon
Waging the battle or just chasing what was always gone

And I'm left down here to perish in the blue hour
Where the better angels dare to dream to come true
Through the halls their wings rumble, I feel their power
And I know for a fact that heaven is blue
And I know for a fact that heaven
...is blue

Before the sun awakens in the Austin skies
It makes me happy 'till I start to cry
One star above the shores of Elbow Key
I wish i tmocked me, but it always spoke so gently to me
The possibilities of lullabies and nightmares joined
And there's no fear, but just heroic joy
And not a thing at all that I can do
But close my eyes and dream of telling it all to you

And I'm left down here to perish in the blue hour
Where the better angels dare to dream to come true
Through the halls their wings rumble, I feel their power
And I know for a fact that heaven is blue
And I know for a fact that heaven
...is blue
...It's blue
...It's blue
