Paint It Black

This song is by The Tea Party and appears on the album Tangents - The Tea Party Collection (2000).

This song is a cover of "Paint It, Black" by The Rolling Stones.
I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours any more, I want them to turn black
And I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

I look inside myself to see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
And maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

And I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
And I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I want to see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I want to see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I want to see it painted, painted, painted black
I want to see it painted, painted, painted black

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards
