meet me where the flame turns blue

Ya know how you wake up with one line from a song stuck playing in your head as soon as you wake up?  You can't help but think, "wow, this must MEAN something!"
The line was, "meet me where the flame turns blue" from David Gray's lovely song titled, "Flame Turns Blue", so naturally, I've been looking all over the place for a blue flame.  Who am I supposed to meet there??  What a mystery, huh?
ha ha ha



I went looking for someone I left behind
Yeah, but no one, just a stranger did I find
I never noticed, hadn't seen it as it grew
The void between us where the flame turns blue
Different places, yeah but they all look much the same
Dreams of faces in the streets devoured by names
I'm in collision with every stone I ever threw
And blind ambition where the flame turns blue
Words dismantled, hey and all the books unbound
Conversations, though we utter not a sound
I heard a rumor, I don't know if it's true
That you'd meet me when the flame turns blue
Oh and now
So I venture underneath the leaden sky
See the freight train with it's one fierce eye
And then I listen as it tears the night in two
With a whistle and the flame turns blue
In the morning I will sing
In the morning I will sing
Through the lemon trees, the diamonds of light
Break in splinters on the pages where I write
That if I lost you, I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue
Yeah if I lost you, I don't know what I'd do
Burn forever where the flame turns blue
In the morning I will sing
