Watercolors

This song is by Nina Gordon and appears on the album Bleeding Heart Graffiti (2006).

Once in a while
You ask for a smile
And what am I going to say?

My tears are real
I like how they feel
I like how they carry me away

Baby I'm warning you
I'm happiest when I'm blue

Now I'm bleeding like watercolors
Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens
Keep on running like watercolors
Lead me back to the sea

I'm just a fool
I talk out of school
I do things I should not do

But I'm not ashamed
It's the way that I'm made
I'm sorry but I'll never change for you

At least I can tell the truth
That I'm happiest when I'm blue

Now I'm bleeding like watercolors
Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens
Keep on running like watercolors
Lead me back to the sea

Nightshade and Opaline
Blackbirds and faded dreams
And I'm falling, falling down
I keep falling, falling down

Baby I'm warning you
I'm happiest when I'm blue
When I'm blue

Now I'm bleeding like watercolors
Keep me dreaming in pale blues and greens
Keep on running like watercolors
Wide and open and blue like the sea
Always running like watercolors
Ocean colors that bleed for me
Keep on running like watercolors
And lead me back to the sea
Just lead me back to the sea
