Leaving These Blues

Your daily lyrics: These Blues Lyrics by Jimmy Lafave There’s a new light above you Let it shine, let it shine Let your faith and your hope both renew Don’t fade from our sight Deep in the night Like a stranger on a lost avenue Hey, you’ve got to be leaving these blues Though your […]
