The Postmarks – Watercolors lyrics

Paint my heart
Black and blue
In the portrait
That you said you'd do
Sitting by the window sill
Where the sunbeams
Melt my daydreams

Flowers fade away
And the colors turn to gray

Paint me blue
Like the sky
Blend into the background
As the birds fly by
The landscape smeared
By my falling tears
I'll close my eyes
Until this storm clears

No umbrellas keep out this rain
No soft clouds cushion my pain
Little drops left their stain
On the picture frame

Watercolors bleeding
From my broken heart
Let my tears dry
With the paint
