Duran Duran – PAINT IT BLACK Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I see a red door I said « Paint it black »
No colour in my life so just turn it black
I see the girls walkin’ by dressed in their summer clothes
I’m gonna turn my head ’til the darkness goes

[Verse 2]
I see this line of cars, they’re all painted black
Dead flowers and my love, both never to come back
You people turn your heads and quick now, look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

[Verse 3]
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Maybe then, I’ll fade away and not face the facts
It’s not easy facing up when your whole world is black

[Verse 4]
No more will my deep sea shade a deeper blue
Maybe now this dark thing will start happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will be laughing at me before the morning comes

I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted
Painted black, yeah
