Colorado 5591
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
A simple love song
A simple love gone wrong
A simple way to cope
With six years of love strong
Then gone
And I speak of Colorado 5591
Where there's a paxil-plated morning sun
A hug now and then from everyone
Colorado 5591

Chorus:
But would you take it away, boys?
Take it away
Would you take this pain away?
Take it away
Would you take it away, boys?
Take it away

And through this great parade I, I walked alone
Trying to be heard through a different song
But the music too loud, or the crowd too strong
I kept to myself, I kept alone
And many friends that I have lost
And many friends that I found
You see, we all want to stay on common ground
We've got to find this common ground

Chorus:
But would you take it away, boys?
Take it away
Would you take this pain away?
Take it away
Would you take it away, boys?
Take it away

"Colorado was the unit that I was on, I wasn't in Colorado, it was actually San Antonio.  So this is Colorado 5591."

-Justin at Sidecar 12-27-00

"it's a song about a vacation that I took, for about a week and a half.  Up to Colorado."

-Justin at Zelda's 03-14-98

In some live versions, Justin repeats the first verse at the end.  This song is played live by both 5591 and Blue October, from as early as 1998.
