Well I couldn't sleep last night
Just walked the floor
Don't know how I'll stand this anymore
Lonely all the time since I lost you

Received your invitation to the blues
I don't know why you cause me such pain
I just hope I just never go through this much again
Thanks for sending something I can't use
Received your invitation to the blues

You took the laughter from this world of mine
And thanks to you the sun will never shine
I walk the floor so much I wore out my shoes
I received your invitation to the blues
I don't know why you cause me such pain
I just hope I just never go through this much again
Well lonely me I don't know what to do
Received your invitation to the blues
I don't know why you cause me such pain
I just hope I never go though this much again

Thanks for sending something I can't use
Received your invitation to the blues
