    Lyrics

    The different shades of white
    Are in my head tonight
    What happened to the colours of fire?
    What happened to the colours?

    She is painting forty different shades of white
    On white paper
    On white paper
    Glowing happiness arrived the day
    Baby came to stay
    And all is well in the new world

    I, on the other hand,
    Can't seem to settle down
    My eyes hurry not to see her falling away from me

    I'm painting forty different shades of green
    For all I'm worth, on yesterday's paper
    But innocence is never news
    The black keeps bleeding through
    Only to reveal our worldly blues

    Doesn't seem so long since we were young
    Oh, when we were young
    When we were young

    I see families walking in the park
    Who seem quite happy to live this way
    She asks me, "What's the matter darling?
    You're suddenly grey. You don't look well,"
    The arms of another
    It's my idea of hell

    So shout if you find a way back to the light and air
    Laughing and changing the subject
    Ain't gonna get you there

    The different shades of white
    Fill my head tonight
    What happened to the colours?
    What happened to the colours?

    The different shades of white
    Are everywhere tonight
    What happened to the colours of fire?

    I used to be centre-stage
    Time I should act my age
    And watch from the shadowed wings
    All these beautiful things
    All these beautiful things

    Even now
    My eyes that hurry to see no more are painting, painting
    Faces of my lost girl.
