Blue Veins

Your blue veins

When I was surrounded by the world
You were the only one who came
And you were the only one astounded
Which kept me grounded
As the other girls thrashed my very name

Then I looked over just in time
To see her smiling back at me
And saying everything's okay
As long as you're inside my blue veins
Your blue veins

Yeah, and the feeling that you gave me
No matter what I do or where I go
It always will remain
And those who would enslave me
To get to me, must get past you and will have no luck
'Cause you'll protect me from all pain
It's true, you know what

The most beautiful
Yeah, the most beautiful thing
'Cause anything else can't compare
Must be the blood that's running through your blue veins
Your blue veins

Think it's gonna rain
Your blue veins

And I know you won't deceive me
Like the rest, and there's nothing you need to explain
You're always the first one to believe me
When I say to you, "Girl, I think it's gonna rain"
But I could be wrong

Yeah, but all of these things
All these things, they're all truly nice
But it ain't nothing, that ain't nothing compared to the love
That's running through your little blue veins
Your blue veins
