Paint It Black  Vanessa Carlton

[Am] I see a red door and I w[E]ant it painted black

[Am] No colors anymore I w[E]ant them to turn black

Bridge 1:
[Am]   I [G]see the gir[C]ls walk [G]by dressed [Am]in their summer clothes

   I [G]have to tur[C]n my hea[G]d un-[D9]til my darkness goe[E7]s

Verse 2:
[Am]   I [E]see a line of cars and they are painted black
[Am]   With flowers and my love both [E]never to come back

Bridge 2:
[Am]   I [G]see peopl[C]e turn [G]their [Am]heads and quickly look away
   Like [G]a newbor[C]n bab[G]y, it [D9]just happens every d[E7]ay

Verse 3:
[Am]   I look inside myself and [E]see my heart is black

[Am]   I see my red door and its [E]heading into black

Bridge 3:
[Am]   May[G]be then I'l[C]l fade [G]away [Am]and not have to face the facts

   It's [G]not eas[C]y fac[G]ing up when [D9]your whole world is bla[E7]ck

   I wanna see it [Am]painted, painted...painted b[E7]lack
   Oh baby, I wanna see it p[Am]ainted, painted...painted bl[E7]ack
Oh baby... A5 Am9

[Am]   No more will my green sea go [E]turn a deeper blue
[Am]   I could not foresee this thing [E]happening to you
Bridge 4:
[Am]   If [G]I look [C]hard eno[C]ugh in[Am]to the setting sun

   My [G]love will l[C]augh [G]with me be[D9]fore the morning [E7]comes

[Am]   "Mm"___________________[E]___________
[Am]   "Mm"___________________[E]___________
[Am]   "Mm"___________________[E]___________
[Am]   "Mm"___________________[E]___________
   I wanna see it [Am]painted, painted...painte[E]d black oh,
   [Am]Black as night, black as coal, I wanna see the sun  [E7]
Blotted out from the sky

   [Am]Painted, painted, painted bl[E7]ack

   [Am]Painted, painted, painted bl[E7]ack
