Mixed Blessing
Al Stewart
She never learned her lesson
She had to have it all
It was a real mixed blessing
I don't believe she saw
She liked to keep them guessing
Sometime later on
She'd gather her possessions and be gone

When the night comes following
From the clear blue sky
You can see her running
Don't you wonder why
When the light goes fading
From her clear blue eyes
Only in the darkest places will she feel at home
Tonight

From time to time I'd see her
It wasn't like before
No matter what you gave her
She always wanted more
Her life was getting fractured
She didn't seem to care
Wherever there was action she'd be there

When the night comes following
From the clear blue sky
You can see her running
Don't you wonder why
When the light goes fading
From her clear blue eyes
Only in the darkest places will she be at home
Tonight

She never learned her lesson
She had to take that fall
It was a real mixed blessing
After all
