lyrics

I am the color red
I should be learning
but I'm yearning instead

You are a deep, deep blue
I can see it when you're lonely
and when all eyes are on you

And I hope
You don't think I'm red for only you
I've done my time
My time is through
That's just the way I am
That's just the way I've always been
I am
The color red

I turn the color red
It's nothing other than
the closeness of our heads

Your proximity is near
I like to think I know you best
when we are lying here

And I hope
You don't think I'm red for only you
I've done my time
My time is through
That's just the way I am
That's just the way I've always been
I am
The color red
