 EmCGC
 When the morning of your eyes comes waking through my shadows
 EmCD7G
 Leaving just a trace of twilight sleep,
 EmCGC
whisper to the baby raindrops playing on my window,
 EmCGD7G
And tell them gently this is not the time that they should weep.

CHORUS:
 D7G
For somewhere in my mind there is a painting box,
 D7G
 I have every color there it's true.
 D7G
Just lately when I look inside my painting box,
 D7G
seem to pick the colors of you.

 EmCGC
My Friday evening's foot-steps plodding dully through this black town,
 EmCD7G
Are far away now from the world that I'm in.
 EmCGC
My eyes are listening to some sounds that I think just might be springtime,
 EmCGD7G
With daffo-dils between my toes I'm laughing at their whim,

CHORUS

 EmCGC
The purple sail above me catches all the strength of summer.
 EmCD7G
 Fishes stop and ask me where I am bound.
 EmCGC
smile and shake my head and say my little ship is sinking,
 EmCGD7G
But I kind of like the sea that I'm on, and I don't mind if I do drown.

CHORUS
