The brilliant blues, don't want to be frozen
                             |D          E
I'll spend my mornings at the sunshine cafe
    |A                    |D             E       |A
I've read the news and the clique-ridden notions
                      |D       E      
I know that now is the time to say

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To teach (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So tell me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on and tell me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To preach (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So help me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on and help me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

The brilliant blues will never flow this way again
The colour of the Mersey is grey
The brilliant blues have faded into sadness and pain
And now is the time to say, it's time

|F#m                    |             |                         |
 You and me are going to finally sail away

 You and me are going to fight until we reach the day
 rain)                                       (For now is the time that we 
|G            C    
 must say goodbye to)

The brilliant blues
I don't want to be frozen
I'll spend my mornings at the sunshine cafe
I've read the news and the clique-ridden notions
I know that now is the time to say

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To trust (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So buy me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Come on and try me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

It's time (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
To thrust (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
So guide me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)
Stay beside me (say goodbye to the brilliant blues)

The brilliant blues will never flow this way again
The colour of the Mersey is grey
The brilliant blues have faded into sadness and pain
              |D D    |E E     |A
And now is the time to say it's time
