lyrics

I could paint you red, like the passion you feel
It might not be colorful, but at least it'd be real

And I could paint you green, like the envy you know, when you're all alone at night
With nowhere to go

And I could paint you grey, to show how you're empty
To show how you don't care
So the world can all see

And I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could paint you taupe
Because they say that its soothing
But youre like a drug to me
That could use some abusing

And I could paint you gold
To show you're immortal
Would that make you honest?
Would it make you sincere?

Scarlet and Clover, all the things we talked about
Violet and green and the world in between
The grey skies in your blue eyes, broken hearts are all that you know

I could be clear
Yeah you could see through me
And I could be beautiful
Just to be yours

Just to be.

I could paint you clear,
Id make you graceful
Id make you beautiful
Cuz that's what you are

And I could be clear, and I could be graceful
I swear Id be colorful just to be yours

If I were an artist, then I could be yours

Jake Coco Los Angeles, California

I am going to stick to the ever-so cliche answer of "everything". It is the truth though, every second of my life goes into every song that I write.
