PATCH OF BLUE

    IT’S NOT HOW I FEEL WHEN I LOOK AT YOU
    IT’S WHAT I FEEL WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES
    AMAZING HOW THE CHAOS SEEMS TO MELT AWAY
    AND MY BODY STARTS TO RHAPSODIZE

    OH, COULD IT BE A MASQUERADE
    OR MAYBE JUST A PATCH OF BLUE
    COULD IT BE A SWEET CHARADE
    OR MAYBE I’M AFRAID OF YOU

    IT’S NOT THAT I DON’T BELIEVE IN DREAM COME TRUE
    OR I CAN’T ABIDE IN DESTINY
    IT’S ONLY THAT MY HEART HAS KNOWN A  BREAK OR TWO
    AND AT TIMES HAS GIVEN UP ON ME

    OH, COULD IT BE A MASQUERADE
    OR MAYBE JUST A PATCH OF BLUE
    COULD IT BE A SWEET CHARADE
    OR MAYBE I’M AFRAID OF YOU
              
    AS LONG AS YOUR ARMS ARE SO DELECTABLE
    THEN I CAN’T RESIST YOUR FINGERTIPS
    AND I AS A WOMAN AM SUSCEPTIBLE
    AS THE WORDS OF LOVE ESCAPE YOUR LIPS  

    OH, COULD IT BE A MASQUERADE
    OR MAYBE JUST A PATCH OF BLUE
    COULD IT BE A SWEET CHARADE
    OR MAYBE I’M AFRAID OF YOU

COMMENT:
My songs are truly individual beings.
And like people in our lives, some you get to know way better than others.
I began writing this song as a way to talk about something that was not just hard for me,
but of which I was not fully aware. It was an impending sense of shadow. So I spoke about it as
a “masquerade” and as a “patch of blue”. Even “maybe I’m afraid of you”.
But always right along my passion, as in “I can’t resist your fingertips”.
I can sometimes be naive.
Turned out I was right. The situation was not good for me.
But I sure as hell love the “delectable/susceptible” rhyme!
