My Colouring Book Lyrics

by Dusty Springfield

For those who fancy colouring books and lots of people do
Here's a new one for you
A most unusual colouring book, the kind you'll never see
Crayons ready? Very well, begin to color me

These are the eyes that watched him as he walked away
Color them gray
This is the heart that thought he would always be true
Color it blue

These are the arms that held him and touched him
Lost him somehow, color them empty now
These are the beads I wore until she came between
Color them green

This is the room that I sleep in and walk in
And weep in and hide in that nobody, nobody's seen
Oh, color it lonely, please
This is the man whose love I depended upon
Color him gone
