[F#m]Pictures on my wall
F#m*
In fifteen different colors
[F#m]Starting with vermillion
[G]The first flower of the summer
[Em]And[A] I don't think I'll be finished
[D]'T[Dsus2]il I'v[-D]e begun to understand this
[G]With you stretched out in the sunlight
[Em]As [A]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
[Em]Wel[A]l your curl defines your spiral
[D]As[Dsus2-D] you sillouette the window
[G]And my brush forgets itself
[Em]Spi[A]lls lines upon your pillow

[D]Finds you standing in the middle
F#m G transition to Em
Of lines you laid down before
[Em]Try[A]in[F#m]g 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
[Em]I h[A]ave seen your eyes in paintings
[D]As[Dsus2-D] cathedrals cried hosanna
[G]Let me paint your face in frescos
[Em]Han[A]g your hair like candellabras

[D]See you standing in the middle
F#m G transition to Em
Of lines you laid down before
[Em]Try[A]in[F#m]g to paint my picture into yours
F#m* F#m F#m*
[G]  [Em]   [A-Asus-A]         [F#m]    [F#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
[Em]I c[A]ould never find the colors
[D]Or[Dsus2-D] the light to finally paint you
[G]With those roses in your hair
[Em]The[A] 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
[Em]Try[A]in[D]g to paint my picture into yours
[Dsus-D]F#m F#m[G]* [G]
F#m F#m*
End strumming D a few times
