Colours

I’m oil on canvas to your wild and weary mind
You paint this world in colours I can’t hide behind
Too many things in anguish passed, so many things were said
That you nor I could mean to have inside our heads

Bridge:
But they’re here, I saw them coming
Made me spill my mind
They were there when I went over
Life and love gone blind

Chorus:
But I won’t wear these
I won’t do as you please
No, I won’t bear yours
I won’t get down on all fours
And I won’t wear these

Try to paint the picture left inside you blind
I wouldn’t be surprised if it was empty as your mind
For all your brushes you can’t paint me in your kind
Between what you and I had nothing’s left behind

Bridge:
But you’re here, I saw you coming
Made me spill my mind
You were there when I went over
Life and love gone blind

Chorus:
But I won’t wear these
I won’t do as you please
No, I won’t bear yours
I won’t get down on all fours
And I won’t wear these
