 F#m
 Pictures on my wall
F#m*
In fifteen different colors
 F#m
 Starting with vermillion
 G
 The first flower of the summer
 EmA
 And I don't think I'll be finished
 DDsus2-D
 'Til I've begun to understand this
 G
 With you stretched out in the sunlight
 EmA
 As your laughter fills my canvas

 F#m
 The sun falls in like fingers
F#m*
On your back against the blinds
 F#m
 Tracing out your hours
 G
 It is filling in your lines
 EmA
 Well your curl defines your spiral
 DDsus2-D
 As you sillouette the window
 G
 And my brush forgets itself
 EmA
 Spills lines upon your pillow

 D
 Finds you standing in the middle
F#m G transition to Em
Of lines you laid down before
 EmAF#m
 Trying to paint my picture into yours
F#m* F#m F#m*

 F#m
 Let me paint you in the corner
F#m*
As your shoulders trap the light
 F#m
 See the sunset filling golden up
 G
 The wineskin of the night
 EmA
 I have seen your eyes in paintings
 DDsus2-D
 As cathedrals cried hosanna
 G
 Let me paint your face in frescos
 EmA
 Hang your hair like candellabras

 D
 See you standing in the middle
F#m G transition to Em
Of lines you laid down before
 EmAF#m
 Trying to paint my picture into yours
F#m* F#m F#m*
 GEmA-Asus-AF#mF#m
 F#m
 In the morning let me find you
F#m*
As I call to you by name
 F#m
 Your body warm beside me
 G
 Not imprisoned in a frame
 EmA
 I could never find the colors
 DDsus2-D
 Or the light to finally paint you
 G
 With those roses in your hair
 EmA
 The smell of wine and mortal perfume

 D
 As you're standing in the middle
F#m G transition to Em
Of lines you laid down before
 EmAD
 Trying to paint my picture into yours
 Dsus-DGG
 F#m F#m 
F#m F#m*
End strumming D a few times
