Lyrics FOR THOSE
WHO FANCY COLORING BOOKS,
AND LOTS OF PEOPLE DO,
HERE'S A NEW ONE
FOR YOU.
A MOST UNUSUAL
COLORING BOOK,
THE KIND YOU NEVER SEE.
CRAYONS READY,
VERY WELL,
BEGIN TO COLOR ME.

THESE ARE THE EYES
THAT WATCHED HIM
AS HE WALKED AWAY,
COLOR THEM GREY.
THIS IS THE HEART
THAT THOUGHT
HE WOULD ALWAYS BE TRUE,
COLOR IT BLUE.
THESE ARE THE ARMS
THAT HELD HIM
AND LOVED HIM,
THEN LOST HIM
SOMEHOW,
COLOR THEM
EMPTY NOW.
THESE ARE THE BEADS
I WORE
UNTIL SHE
CAME BETWEEN,
COLOR THEM GREEN.
THIS IS THE ROOM
I SLEEP IN
AND WALK IN
AND WEEP IN
AND HIDE IN
THAT NOBODY SEES,
COLOR IT LONELY,
PLEASE.
THIS IS THE MAN,
THE ONE
I DEPENDED ON,
COLOR HIM GONE.
