I guess it finally dawned on me you're gone
Well maybe I can make it on my own
I don't stay up wonderin' if you'll call
And some nights I don't dream of you at all

Your memory's still hurtin' deep inside
That's something I'm still learnin' how to hide
Though this heart of mine has lost an ache or two
I've only turned a lighter shade of blue

[Chorus]
Lookin' down the line sometimes
I think I see a change
But then I think again and think of you
Here and there I've turned a stone
But the mountain hasn't moved
I've only turned a lighter shade of blue

I'm still afraid of turning out the light
And it takes all my strength to face the night
Cause that's the time I face the bitter truth
I've only turned a lighter shade of blue

[Chorus]
