Billy Bragg - From Red to Blue Lyrics

Another day dawn's grey
It's enough to make me spit
But we go on our way
Just putting up with it
And when I try to make my
Feelings known to you
You sound like you have changed from red to blue

You're a father now
You seen things in different ways
For every parent will
Gain perspective on their wilder days
But that alone does not explain
The change I see in you
The way you've drifted off from red to blue

Sometimes I think to myself
Should I vote red for my class
Or green for our children
But whatever choice I make I will not forsake

So you bought it all
The best your money could buy
And I watched you sell your soul
For the bright shining light

Where are the principles
Of the friend I thought I knew
I guess you let them fade from red to blue
I hate the compromises
That life forces us to make
We all must all bend a little
If we are not to break
But the ideas you've opted out of
I still hold them to be true
I guess they weren't so firmly held by you
