Don't Paint The Skies
Lyrics
Color me a broken smile
Paint a picture of a lonely child
Forgotten dreams and empty lies
Color me blue, but don't paint the skies.

'Cause you'll see that they're crying, crying for you
You'll find that the tears will drown out the blue.

Color me a lonely mile
Paint a picture without a smile
No wasted words, no long goodbyes
You color me blue, so don't paint the skies.

'Cause you'll see that they're crying, crying for you
You'll find that the tears will drown out the blue...

(Chorus)
So don't paint the skies;
Or the clouds in my eyes!
So don't paint the skies!
Or the clouds in my eyes.

Color me a broken flower
Paint a picture of a lonely hour
With planes on fire and empty skies
You color me blue, but you don't paint the "whys?"

Why you see that I'm crying, crying for you
You'll find that the tears will drown out the blue...

(Chorus)

So don't paint the skies!
So don't paint the skies!

(Chorus)
