[Em]When the [C]morning of your eyes comes [G]waking through my [C]shadows
[Em]Leaving [C]just a trace of t[A7]wilight s[G]leep,
I [Em]whisper [C]to the baby raindrops [G]playing on my [C]window,
And [Em]tell them [C]gently [G]this is not the [D7]time that they should [G]weep.
CHORUS:
For [D7]somewhere in my mind there is a [G]painting box,
[D7]I have every color there it's [G]true.
Just [D7]lately when I look inside my [G]painting box,
I [D7]seem to pick the colors of [G]you.

My [Em]Friday [C]evening's foot-steps plodding [G]dully through this [C]black town,
Are [Em]far [C]away now from the [A7]world that I'm [G]in.
My [Em]eyes are [C]listening to some sounds that I [G]think just might be [C]springtime,
With [Em]daffo-[C]dils be[G]tween my toes I'm [D7]laughing at their [G]whim,

CHORUS

The [Em]purple [C]sail above me catches [G]all the strength of [C]summer.
[Em]Fishes s[C]top and ask me [A7]where I am [G]bound.
I [Em]smile and [C]shake my head and say my [G]little ship is [C]sinking,
But I [Em]kind of [C]like the [G]sea that I'm on, and I don't [D7]mind if I do [G]drown.
