lyrics

Paint me in gray when my words aren’t what I want to say
Paint me in pink
 when I say the things I meant to think


Paint me in yellow
 when I swear I know but I don’t know
Paint me in green
 when I want the things I really mean

Paint me in brown
 when it hits the fan, life’s got me down
Paint me in teal
 when I say too much, it’s getting real

Paint me in purple
 when I turn away the thoughts that hurt
Paint me in red
 when I rage against the things I said

No matter what I say
The things I mean, I can’t get through
No matter what you see
My colors, they are never true

No matter what I seem
The things I feel, they’re meant for you
No matter what I’ve been
My colors, they are never true

Paint me in blue

 when I wish that I was there with you
Paint me in gold
 when I give myself, I’m yours to hold

Paint me in white
 when I wave the flag, give up the fight
Paint me in amber
 when I feed the fire in anger

No matter what I say
The things I mean, I can’t get through
No matter what you see
My colors, they are never true

Paint me in violet
 when I’m playing strong and silent
Paint me in cyan
 when I cross my heart and hope to die

Paint me in black
 if I ever try to push you back
Paint me in silver
 when I promise I will still be here

You can only know me
By the color of my heart
You can only know me
By the color of my heart

You can only know me
By the color of my heart
I can show you, show you
The color of my heart

Paint me in tan
, in turquoise and chartreuse
Paint me in maroon
 when I'm quick to judge and speak too soon

Paint me in indigo, in lavender, azure and wheat
Paint in magenta
 when I blame the things that I resent

You can only know me
By the color of my heart
You can only know me
By the color of my heart

You can only know me
By the color of my heart
I can show you, show you
The color of my heart
