Blue is a song recorded by the Seatbelts. It is sung by Mai Yasmane and replaces The Real Folk Blues as the ending song for the final session for Cowboy Bebop, The Real Folk Blues Part 2. The song is also the opening title track to the album of the same name. It is one of the few songs from Cowboy Bebop sung entirely in English by Yamane.
The song opens with a chorus sung by Soichiro Otsuka and Gabriela Robin, who return in the bridge of the song singing the exact same chorus, while the remainder of the song is a slow progressing rock tune in the key of G# Major.
Never seen a bluer sky Yeah, I can feel it reaching out And moving closer There's something about blue
Asked myself what it's all for You know the funny thing about it I couldn't answer No, I couldn't answer
Things have turned a deeper shade of blue And images that might be real May be illusion Keep flashing off and on
Free Wanna be free Gonna be free And move among the stars You know, they really aren't so far Feels so free Gotta know free Please Don't wake me from the dream It's really everything it seemed I'm so free No black and white in the blue
Everything is clearer now Life is just a dream, you know That's never ending I'm ascending
