Axis: Bold As Love Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

[Humming]

Anger he smiles
Towering in shiny metallic purple armour

Clean jealousy, envy waits behind him
Her firey green gown sneers at the grassy ground

Blue are the life giving orders
Taken forgranted they quietly understand

Once happy turquoise always lay opposite
Ready but wonder why the fight is on

But they're bold as love
Just as bold as love
Yeah
Yes, they're bold as love
Just ask the Axis

My red is so confident that he flashes trophies of war
And ribbons of uphoria

Orange is young and full of daring
But very unsteady for the first go round

My yellow in this case is not so mellow
In fact I'm trying to say it's frightend like me

All these emotions of mine keep holding me from
Giving my life to a rainbow like you

I'm as bold as love
I'm as bold as love
Just as bold as love
Just ask the Axis

[Humming]

Yes I'm bold as love
I'm as bold as love
Just as bold as love
Yeah
I'm as bold as love
Just as bold as love
Just ask the Axis
Just ask the Axis
