Riff: Ray LaMontagne – “Goodbye Blue Sky”

May 21, 2018

Let me breathe/Let me walk in fields of green/Let me be always beside you/I could fade into black

from Goodbye Blue Sky lyrics by Ray LaMontagne

The daydreaming has come to an end, and he is mourning over the lost time. It was a long journey that had him delving deep into his subconscious, and now that it’s done he can’t help but feel a little melancholy. The mood is still hopeful as he was able to relive some of the joy he shared with the person he loved most. It was a moment in time, and now that he’s regrouped he’s ready to move on.
