Colours

where's the sunshine, where's the moonlight
there're only clouds above my head
where's the sunshine, where's the moonlight
there're only clouds above my head

it's grey, everything's grey, everyday

... then she decided

from now on I'll paint my world in the brightest colours
I'll choose bright orange for the shower
and a deep, deep blue, whenever I think of you

I'll take choose pink for the kitchen floor
and a spring green for the bathroom door
and a deep, deep blue, whenever I think of you


for the ceilings different shades of
sunlight yellow and a rainbow
and a deep, deep blue, whenever I think of you

dots of red all around my bed
around the pictures hanging over my head
and a deep, deep blue, whenever I think of you

... and then she realised

all your pictures are black and white
and white's only in the direct sunlight
it's grey for everything else
you don't have colours attached to yourself

you're grey, oh you're grey, everyday
