The blue

"Rapture" is a song by Anthony & The Johnsons. Here is part of its lyrics: " Eyes are falling, lips are falling. Hair is falling to the ground. Slowly, softly. Falling, falling. Down in silence to the ground. All the world is falling, falling. All the blue From me and you, teardrops falling to the ground."
What does it mean blue in this context?
Thanks in advance.

    I guess it could mean 'sadness'.

    When we are sad, we sometimes say we've got the 'blues'.

    Maybe the alopecia causing his hair to fall to the ground is making him sad? :(

    Thanks heypresto.
    Well as you see, that is a sad song, and referred to how life is progressively deteriorating as you become older. Sadness fits well here.

    I ought to point out that using 'blue' like this is not something we would naturally do. We would never talk about 'my/our/your blue'. It's purely a poetic invention of the songwriter.
