[Intro:]
Yea, been around the world made time
See many things
And in color too
I seen women so beautiful
That I could die with a smile on my face
And I’ll feel like the good Lord in me

This phase between love and hate

[Verse:]
How you expect to have an ordinary relationship
With such an extraordinary n***a, yea this flow’s ain’t what you figured
Ain’t the liquor that got yo considering, calling up the sitter
Telling her you need a couple hours and before you tip er
I like my fantasies, how she trip a half glass slipper
Wrapping one like a riddle with enigma
Character in my flipper
Coming to life when I’m flippin through the pictures
Switchin up the positions, my karma karma chameleon
Change colors with the surroundings
I can hear you with my eyes and I’m loving the way you sounding
I’m smothering and I’m grinding out that is cat and meow
Loving in public when we coming in
Up against the cup until we… right on the couch
(Yellow on a bad day)
Knocking it out without a doubt

[Chorus:]
Colors of you
Ayo the world is a coloring book
Look, new discoveries every time when I color outside the lines
Colors of you
Ayo the world is a coloring book
New discoveries every time when I color outside the lines
Color of you, yea

[Verse:]
My self-expression require every color in the spectrum
My self-reflection make the light change direction
When you see it from this angle, the color that cut the clarity
Stars bringing me down, it’s the depravity and gravity
Having me in my blue phase, go off the grid for a few days
Go on a journey without a suitcase
The security of obscurity
In a world of respect and I’m trading it like it’s currency
Currently it’s soft as a mallet hitting the xylophone
He’s so yellow, I’m wishing this fellow right his wrong
Now in steady it’s synthetic and Styrofoam
Recite a poem, some monotone that ain’t monochrome
My light will poke through the clouds, I’ll take you higher like you smoking the loud
While I provide at your kaleidoscope of sound
You can see it with your ears, you can hear with your eyes
You can feel it right here yea

[Chorus:]
Colors of you
You don’t look like turquoise
You don’t look like gold
You don’t look like purple
That’ll match on you
Ayo the world is a coloring book
Look, new discoveries every time when I color outside the lines
Colors of you
Ayo the world is a coloring book
New discoveries every time when I color outside the lines
Colors of you

Colors of you...
