You’ve painted your Colours into my Soul

1) I don’t believe that a few weeks time
is long enough for me to learn
how to live without your love
just how to sit and feel my fire burn

You are my first thought in the morning
I’d like you to be the one girl in my life
but now I see you can’t make it this way today
and tomorrow is a long long way to go
tomorrow is a long way, tomorrow is a long long way to go
but be careful, darling
‚cause you’ve painted your colours into my soul

2) Maybe on your way in maybe ten years from today
you wanna settle down with just one man’s love to stay
and will you think of me, will I be part of your memory
will you wonder what I’m doing those days?

You are my first thought in the morning
I’d like you to be the one girl in my life
but now I see you can’t make it this way today
and tomorrow is a long long way to go
tomorrow is a long way, tomorrow is a long long way to go
but be careful, darling
‚cause you’ve painted your colours into my soul
