Your Every Colour

I can see the red, white and free in you,
You light the night up like the moon,
And underneath your clouds, I see the blue.

You're hopeless 'cause you tell the truth,
The stars are jealous of your shine,
If you were mine,
There's not a thing I wouldn't do.

You're black and beautiful, yellow, tan,
You're white as light and soft as sand,
With greens and grays and oh for days,
A silver lining on the way you cover everyone.
Just like a morning sun
You turn me into someone I would rather be.

I love your every color,
I love your everything,
You wear the day around you,
Like it's yours to stay around you.
Maybe I could stay around you too
If that's alright with you.

You're coffee brown and bubble gum pink,
And oh I think the shade of you is on the brink,
Of changing all the ways I see the world.
I could drown inside a single drop,
Of all the kinds of things you got,
And all the kinds of things I'm not.

Might just give me a chance to see,
From way up where you are,
Above the silent stars,
Just dancing in the sky.

You're better than any rainbow,
You're brighter than the sun,
You look like my first day of summer,
When my spring is on the run.
You're gold and more gold,
And you're platinum too,
With snow toned, copper attitude.
I don't know what I'd do without you,
I don't know what I'll do about you.

~ Train

I love it when poetry, unwritten by me, is exactly what I want to say.

this is absolutely beautiful. I want to listen to it! Or would that wreck it?

I don't think it wrecks it. I like the lyrics better than the tune, but if you hate Trains voice or something...dont' listen.
