My sky ain't blue today,
You'll never slide my negligee from my shoulders again.
Chain-smoked all my cigarettes,
Can't pull myself from this bed. Damn! I'm out of gin.

(chorus)
Oh, everything I see and do,
Keeps draggin' me right back to you,
You're everywhere.
I smell your clothes, I touch your face,
Smiling in that picture frame,
Without you here--my sky ain't blue.

My sky ain't blue no more.
Your ghost is rattling the door. Oh! It's just the wind.
And my tears are raining down,
Sometimes I wish I'd drown, put this pain to an end.

(chorus)
Cause everything I see and do,
Keeps draggin' me right back to you,
You're everywhere.
I smell your clothes, I touch your face,
Smiling in that picture frame,
Without you here--my sky ain't blue.

(bridge)
Call me crazy, but I swear...

(chorus)
That everything I see and do,
Keeps draggin' me right back to you,
You're everywhere.
I smell your clothes, I touch your face,
Smiling in that picture frame,
Love's so unfair.
Everything I see and do,
Keeps draggin' me right back to you,
You're everywhere.
I slip on your shirt, I kiss your face,
Smiling in that picture frame,
Without you here,
Without you here--my sky ain't blue.
