All things Forever Blue

In the lead up to the release of Forever Blue, I thought it would be fun to post some links on Facebook of all things Forever Blue. And by that, I mean some of the things that turned up on a google search titled Forever Blue. I came across some gorgeous songs, some artwork and some photography which I thought I would share on here as well.

Forever Blue – Song by Chris Isaak

I started off with this song by Chris Isaak. Even though it was released back in 1995, I had never heard it. It’s a song of heartbreak and sadness. And one which I could imagine Ruben listening too, not so much before, but definitely after.
The lyrics below were sourced from www.azlyrics.com.

Nobody ever warns you, or tells you what to do.
She walks away, you’re left to stay.
Alone forever blue.

The stars have all stopped shining, the sun just won’t break through.
Each days the same, more clouds more rain.
you’re left forever blue.

Forever blue ’cause you love her, but she dosen’t love you.
You did your best, life did the rest.
you’re left forever blue.

No reason left for living, still there’s a lot to do.
New tears to cry, old songs to sing.
And feel forever blue.
And be forever…. Blue

Forever Blue – Art by Isabelle Vobmann

The artwork below is an acrylic painting by Isabelle Vobmann. It is something I imagine that Lennon’s mother, Shelley would adore.

So I’m not too sure who the original poster of this gif was, but it seemed to fit the theme.

Thanks val. I’m pretty sure Cara would love it.

Forever Blue – Photography by Ian Middleton

For day four I found this stunning image by photographer Ian Middleton. I’m pretty sure the Deacons’ would have this in their lounge.
Check it out over on Redbubble.

Forever Blue – Song by Kina Grannis

I came across this while searching within Facebook. The song is amazing. So sad and sweet. I had to follow her immediately! Here’s what Kina had to say about the song.

“Forever Blue” is a song I wrote about loss–about fearing it, coping with it, knowing it is inevitable. It is also a song about love, as I don’t think you can really have one without the other. While I wish we could all float through life devoid of all the hurt and sadness that comes with loss, in a way it’s beautiful because it’s proof that we have allowed ourselves to really feel and really love.”

Again, I grabbed the lyrics from www.azlyrics.com.

When I was a child
I was heavy hearted
Knowing all that started to an end
I dreamt of a day
No one ever left here
Cried out to the night to find a way

And it broke my heart
When I felt the truth
My father has a father too
Don’t understand how we’ll make it through
Will I be forever blue?

Everyday I’ve known
It grows only deeper
Why can’t I not keep her here for good
So I’ll take the waves
Floating when I’m weaker
Waiting through the water missing you

And it broke my heart
When I felt the truth
My father has a father too
Don’t understand how we’ll make it through
Will I be forever blue?

Play to mother
We’re still fighting
We’re all trying to make it home for you

All my love is yours forever
Take it with you
Take it with you

All my love is yours forever
Take it with you
Say you’ll never go

When I was a child
I was heavy hearted

Well that’s my round up of all things Forever Blue. Well, really it was five things Forever Blue, but all things Forever Blue sounds more appealing.
