I Pictured You In Blue

You hide behind the white curtains
daylight reveals your shadow
I know where you are and always knew
only this time I don’t want to seek you out
so I ignore you standing there

turned my back
should’ve faced you
turned my back on
all the things you were

I pictured you in blue before you painted yourself red
I wish I had picked somewhere else to fall to pieces
I guess, after all, sleep will make me whole
but I can’t help that I will dream about you once again

Right by the window you sit
waiting for the days to pass you by
so that one day you’ll look back
and cut yourself on the regrets that
you just couldn’t live or sleep without
like your favourite toys
that you used to love throwing out

Approached from behind you
wanting to give you what I had
but then I just turned my back
and went back to the last of my sleep

I pictured you in blue before you painted yourself red
I wish I had picked somewhere else to fall to pieces
I guess, after all, sleep will make me whole
but I can’t help that I will dream about you once again
I pictured you in blue before the morning took that vision away
I wish you had picked somewhere else to be yourself
I guess, after all, sleep does nothing at all
But I can’t help that I will dream about you once again
I can’t help that I will dream about you once again
I just can’t
