lyrics:


Blame it on the green light


you're turning me on


blame it on the yellow light 


when you start to yawn


yeah you just yawn


what's going on?


you always yawn


what's going on?


 


Blame it on the red light


when you say good night


can't forget those good nights


can't forget those good nights


on the road


you're so nice to know


 


Is it you inside my head?


is it you or what mama said?


am i mislead


by your color changing eyes?


They say it's time for bed


and I can't sleep here tonite


 


but thats alright


 


Blame it on the red light


when you say good night


can't forget those good nights


won't forget those good nights


on the road


you're so nice to know


 

 


a lil' background for the Road collab: the song was started on a long car drive home from an unrequited love situation (traffic light idea).  The twist here is that where once I was hung up by a situation like this ("whoa is me"), now I felt at peace.  It literally was like "well good night", I got on the road, and then just started feeling good like - "hey, she's really nice to know.  I had a great time tonight regardless how it ended".  life goes on.


so, that's the shift I try to convey in the chorus.


I tried the song in a couple of musical formats and thought I'd give it a shot with theTenant's inspiringly sweet tune and there ya have it
