Skeeter Davis – My Coloring Book lyrics

For those who fancy coloring book lots of people do
Here's a new one for you
A most unusual coloring book the kind you'll never see
Crayons ready, very well, begin to color me.

These are the eyes that watched him as he walked away
Color them gray
This is the heart that thought he would always be true
Color it blue
These are the arms that held him and touched him
Then lost him somehow
Color them empty now.

These are the beads I wore until she come between
Color them green
This is the room that I sleep in and walk in and weep in
And hiding when nobody sees
Color it lonely please
This is the man, the one I depended upon
Color him gone...
