Paint me a picture of tender eyes
of determined love, of countless tries,
paint it the soft hues of blue
paint with every love that is true.
Paint it with your beating heart
paint it with the abuse that tore things apart
paint it with your every sin
paint it with the blood on your skin.
Don't forget to do it with sorrow
or the feeling of an uncertain tomorrow.
When you paint it, remember me
because sometimes you're all I can see.
Paint me a picture of the past
of when time didn't move so fast,
paint me a picture of loneliness
and across my cheek please brush a kiss.
