Watercolors (Gordon Nina)

Once in a while You ask for a smile And what am I going to say? My tears are real I like how they feel I like how they carry me away Baby I'm warning you I'm happiest when I'm blue Now I'm bleeding like watercolors Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens Keep on running like watercolors Lead me back to the sea I'm just a fool I talk out of school I do things I should not do But I'm not ashamed It's the way that I'm made I'm sorry but I'll never change for you At least I can tell the truth That I'm happiest when I'm blue Now I'm bleeding like watercolors Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens Keep on running like watercolors Lead me back to the sea Nightshade and Opaline Blackbirds and faded dreams And I'm falling, falling down I keep falling, falling down Baby I'm warning you I'm happiest when I'm blue When I'm blue Now I'm bleeding like watercolors Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens Keep on running like watercolors Wide and open and blue like the sea Always running like watercolors Ocean colors that bleed for me Keep on running like watercolors And lead me back to the sea Just lead me back to the sea
