Blue (stylized as BLUE) is a song by Zayn Malik. It appears as the fifteenth track on the deluxe edition of his debut studio album, Mind of Mine.

Lyrically, the song features a yearning reflection on regret and romance.

Background

Interpolating an a capella version of the Johann Sebastian Prelude from Bach’s “Suite No. 1 in G Major” for unaccompanied cello, the beautiful and meditative “BLUE” is the album's first bonus track.[1]

The session for "Blue" took place at around the time after leaving One Direction, when Zayn was staying in the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Zayn has stated that he was "in the zone". Having recorded the song in just one or maybe two takes.

"The session for Blue took place around that time and, when it came to writing and recording, the craziest thing happened."

The singer recalls, "I think I got it down in one, maybe two takes. It just poured out of me in a rush. I was in the zone. Everything felt weird – nice weird; I didn’t really have any idea what was happening. I was standing there, just singing, and all these proper odd words came out, and the melodies had a real swing to them, which wasn’t a style I’d really done much before. I think I was picking up an old-school vibe from the hotel."

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
In the clouds where the angels sing
In your eyes, where I wanna be
And her smile is all I see
She knows I need her loving
She knows I need her touching

She plays with my heart and emotion
I give her my love and devotion
She gave me her thought and a notion
I need her body
It needs me too

[Chorus]
I need somebody to love me blue

[Bridge]
I've been doing it wrong for too long
I said I've been at it wrong for too long
I've been doing it wrong for too long

[Verse 2]
In the clouds where the angels sing
It's her smile, yeah it's all I see
In her eyes, where I wanna be
She knows I need her loving
She knows I need her touching

She plays with my heart and emotion
I give her my love and devotion
She gave me her thought and a notion
I need her body
She needs me too

[Chorus]
I need somebody to love
Love me blue
Love me blue
Love me blue
Love me blue
