LYRICS:

I see a red door
And I want to paint it black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars
And they’re all painted black
Your flowers and my love
Both never to come back

I see them turn their heads
Quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens every day

I look inside my self
See my heart is back
I see my red door
And I want it painted black

Maybe then I’ll fade away
And not have to face the facts
It’s not easy facing love
When your whole world is black

No more will my green sea
Will turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee
This thing happening to you

If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as night

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as coal

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as night

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as coal

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as night

I wanna see it painted black
Painted black, black as coal
