Purple Skies Setting



Purple skies are setting
The stage for evening fun
Replaced by sparkling diamonds
Free jewels for everyone
Night time is for dreaming
The bed is soft and warm
Covered by a patchwork quilt
Safe from the raging storm
Sometimes the movie's scary
So dark it drowns out light
Sometimes the picture's happy
The story ends all right
Purple skies are rising
The pitcher throws a smile
Concealed by lemon sunshine
The jury's back on trial
