Blue Period Picasso

Album: Living Thing (2009)
  • I'm a blue period Picasso stuck on a wall
    In the middle of a hall in Barcelona
    Trying to figure out how to get down
    'Cause this solitude is bringing me down

    The paintings around me, they don't understand me
    I'm a bit too early, I'm seen as development
    Curing adolescence

    But I'm not just being blue
    'Cause I have fallen, shape and color too
    But I miss you
    I miss the content

    That is the focus, that is what all this school is reading to us
    All just a part of what I am
    It's just a part of my beating heart
    Beating for you

    So I beg you please
    Please wrap me up, please take me up
    Please hold me close unto your breast
    Run down the stairs

    Out in open air
    Away from the ladies, the Japanese tourists
    Their guards won't notice cause I'm so hopeless
    Take me wherever you really only came from
    You will be famous, seen in the headlines

    Though you just kindly stole my heart (seen in the headlines)
    Because you kindly stole my heart (a world famous artist)

    I'm a blue period Picasso stuck on a wall
    In the middle of a hall in Barcelona
    Trying to figure out how to get down
    'Cause this solitude is bringing me down

    All just a part of what I am
    It's just a part of my beating heart
    Beating for you
    So I beg you please

    Please wrap me up, please take me up
    Please hold me close unto your breast
    Run down the stairs
    Out in open air

    Away from the ladies, the Japanese tourists
    Their guards won't notice cause I'm so hopeless
    Take me wherever you really only came from
    You will be famous, seen in the headlines

    Though you just kindly stole my heart (seen in the headlines)
    Because you kindly stole my heart (a world famous artist)
    Though you just kindly stole my heart (seen in the headlines)
    Because you kindly stole my heart (a world famous artist)

    I beg you please stay with me, please (seen in the headlines)
    Stay with me please, stay with me (a world famous artist)
    Stay with me Writer/s: BJ�RN YTTLING, BJOERN YTTLING, JOHN ERIKSSON, PETER MOREN
