Give me crimson Give me jade All the different shades Give me cerulean Give me fuschia Give me pea Let me be, let me see All the darks, lights, and in-betweens.
When all else fails, give me color.
Give me the color of the sky; The darkest blacks to the brightest blues, The oranges, pinks, I'll take any hue. Let me sing with the roar of the sea The colors that feed me, that relieve my strife Please, let my palette come to life.
When all else fails, give me color
Any little shade, take a few Even if I lay spent, out of breath Give me one last lovely color Just one, that's all; Any vibrant hue.
