I see a red door and I want it painted black

Em Em B B
No colours anymore I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

Em Em D D G G D D A A B B
I have to turn my head un-til my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black

Em Em B B
With flowers and by love both never to come back

I see people turn their heads and quickly look away

Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I see my red door and I want it painted black

Maybe then I'll fade a-way 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

My love will laugh with me be-fore the morning comes
