The post title comes from the Roy Orbison song ‘When the Blue Hour Comes.’

The good times are all gone
The night keeps coming on so strong
You can’t hold on, no matter what you do
Will there be someone who cares for you
When the blue hour comes?
When the blue hour comes?

And when your restless heart
Tears your world apart
And everywhere you turn
It’s falling down on you
Will there be a light that shines for you?

I couldn’t find a recording of Orbison singing it, but I do like this version by Joan Osborne.
