The Sounds – Painted By Numbers lyrics

Could I act like you, and put a smile on my face
Not even for a second, would I lie to myself
Too many things are missing, and there's a tear in my eye
It's not a question or an answer, but it will change your mind

We'll be the same tomorrow
'Cause we all been painted by numbers
We're dancin' as we borrow
You said it was love
I said I'd like you to be mine

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

I couldn't act like you, but I can love like you do
Between us there is something, I can't explain it to you

We'll be the same tomorrow
'Cause we all been painted by numbers
We're dancin' as we borrow
You said it was love
I got what I need to get by

We'll be the same tomorrow
'Cause we all been painted by numbers
We're dancin' as we borrow
You said it was love
I said I'd like you to be mine

Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

We'll be the same tomorrow
'Cause we all been painted by numbers
We're dancin' as we borrow

Sing a song for sorrow (Sing a song for sorrow)
'Cause we all been painted by numbers
We're dancin' as we borrow
You said it was love
I got what I need to get by
