STORY BEHIND THE SONG

This song is about the issues that so many men and women go through.  Regrets from decisions made, Addiction runs so rampant in Southeast Iowa I have seen so many of my friends and relatives that have been through the struggles of the consequences of addiction manipulated decisions.  Some however have lost their struggle and they forget that life "blue ruin" always takes its dues. 

The resulting mental health issues especially for men goes most of the time untreated.  I hope this song will inspire someone who may be struggling to seek out help. 

I actually had this song written with a title of Right Now No Regrets, but  I combined some of of Paul's words with mine from my life experience and that is how Blue Ruin (Right Now) came to be. 

Because of this inspiration Paul is part of the creation of these lyrics, I am rather proud of the lyrics as they are partially autobiographical in the sense that so many of the topics come from my life experience.

Verse 01
Been strung out for days now
with the road and sun
I had all of the better things
but lost every one
Felt the pain of the heat
and that weary stretch of time
Stop to rest in a bluegrass field
the future's on my mind
Chorus
Cant believe I'm standing here
Mislead by all my fears
Don't know how I'll get thru
Blue Ruin takes her dues (right now)
Verse 02
Every day at my wit's end
Trying to tow the line
whiskeys been my only friend
failure's all been mine
Sun's beating on my back
Don't know where I'll Turn
here I am on the road again
another lesson learned
Chorus
Cant believe I'm standing here
Mislead by all my fears
Don't know how I'll get thru
Blue Ruin takes her dues (right now)
Verse 03
Thoughts of friends and family
from the fringes of my mind
On my way to euphoria
Pretending all is fine.
Hoping I'll get back to you
Cause I wan na see your face
wishing you still love me too
But Im in this same old place
Chorus
Cant believe I'm standing here
Mislead by all my fears
Don't know how I'll get thru
Blue Ruin takes her dues (right now)
Chorus x2
Cant believe I'm standing here
Mislead by all my fears
Don't know how I'll get thru
Blue Ruin takes her dues (right now)
