lyrics

Blue is for river, Red is for blood
Take me to heaven, Teach me to love
Teach me to honor what I can't conceive
Yellow is virtue, Orange is belief

CHORUS:
I want to paint the sky
I want to laugh with the moon
I want to dance with the angels
And I could never tell you why
I want to paint the sky

Purple is courage, Green is the lie
Time loses everything, Everything dies
But all that dies rises in billows of grey
And after come rainbows to color the day

CHORUS:
I want to paint the sky
I want to laugh with the moon
I want to dance with the angels
And I could never tell you why
I want to paint the sky

BRIDGE:
All these colors in my life
Sometimes fade to black and white
But they always leave a trace
So I can find them just in case, just in case...

CHORUS:
I want to paint the sky
I want to laugh with the moon
I want to dance with the angels
And I could never tell you why
I want to paint the sky
