Colours Of Goodbye

Colours of Goodbye
© Jeff Harris/Mick Dalla-Vee/Kenny Holliday

You painted me a picture of the night you said goodbye
From your high horse you hung it on my wall
With every final brush stroke & every fine detail
I guess I should have seen the fall

I don’t see hand in hand
I can’t be just your friend
Am I fading from your life

Your picture’s left me cold
So cold
In the blackness of the night

(Chorus)
Colours of Goodbye
I’ll be searchin’ all my life
Even though you’re gone I gotta carry on
When you fade to black,
There ain’t no comin’ back
Goodbye
I raise a glass of wine
Here’s to an old friend of mine…
And the Colours of Goodbye

Starin’ out the window, all I see is red
Sunday morning, feeling half past dead
Like a cold rush, my heart is turning blue
I would have changed it all, changed it all for you

But you had thoughts of leavin’ I didn’t see the clues
Foolishly living a lie
You left me all alone,
So Alone
I let out a somber sigh

Chorus

Don’t say goodbye don’t say Good bye
I need a brand new canvass without the skies of grey
Don’t say goodbye don’t say Good bye
You know I’ll always love you, I know no other way

Gonna walk
Gonna Pray
To find another way
Gonna stand
Real Tall
Gonna make it after all

Chorus (x2)

Come on Time won’t you be a friend to me
I need your help so listen carefully
Fade away these colours that cause me pain
I never ever want to feel this again

Someone’s gonna paint for her that way
And she’ll be cryin’ for days & days
Having questions & no answers why
That’s the feeling of the Colours of Goodbye

[Lyrics]


Simple Man...

Simple Man

I may not look like Romeo

Or have the words like Cyrano

But I know all the things to treat you right

I may not drive a Cadillac

My ol’ Chevy’s parked out back

And I want you ridin’ with me all my life

Well I can show you girl

That in this mixed up, crazy world


It’s not so complicated

Living easy is how we’ll make it

Just give me a smile and give me your hand

I’ll show you a life of lovin’

Even if we ain’t got nothin’

If less is more then you’ll have all you can

‘Cause I’m a simple man

I may not know which fork to use

To me champagne is high priced booze

But darlin’ I can 2 step all night long

I can’t get into rock and roll

Hip hop, rap, R&B or soul

But I can sing you every Hank Williams song

Well, I can show you girl

That in this crazy world

With so much goin’ on

CHORUS

Meat and Potatoes – T shirt and jeans

When I say something you’ll know what that something means
