  • I'll paint my mood in shades of blue
    Paint my soul to be with you
    I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones
    Draw your mouth to my own

    I'll draw your arms around my waist
    Then all doubt I shall erase
    I'll paint the rain that softly lands on your wind blown hair

    I'll trace a hand to wipe out your tears
    A look to calm your fears
    A silhouette of dark and light
    While we hold each other oh so tight

    I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
    Swearing that we'll never part
    That's the color of my love

    I'll paint the truth
    Show how I feel
    Try to make you completely real
    I'll use a brush so light and fine
    To draw you close and make you mine

    I'll paint the truth
    Show how I feel
    Try to make you completely real
    I'll use a brush so light and fine
    To draw you close and make you mine

    I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
    Swearing that we'll never part
    That's the color of my love

    I'll draw the years all passing by
    So much to learn so much to try

    And with this ring our lives will start
    Swearing that we'll never part
    I offer what you cannot buy
    Devoted love until we die Writer/s: ARTHUR JANOV, DAVID FOSTER
