The day was old, the light was dim
As I stepped through the door And all my friends were gathering
That day that I recall I shivered and shook, Lord I stood

Just waiting to chase the fall I wondered how my time would be
When spring comes round, once more I face the wind, I have no choice
But you must guard the heart And cast adrift from those I love
Alone I drag my heart Against the cry of why
I turn my back to go But out beyond the tears somewhere
Someone, I need to know It's only love, in the colours of the shade
It's only love-ove, in the colours of the shade All in shades, ah, it's only love
Old photographs were fading dim My seed will tell it all
Oh by the Fathers Fathers have Such pain, on ...
They read the signs without surprise Of how they knew it well
And in the mirror still I see The man, who came from hell
It's only love, and the colours of the shade It's only love, in the colours of the shade
It's only love, in the colours of the shade They say, they say, they say
It's only love, it's only love
