Song Lyrics
PAINT IT BLACK (Lee Mead) written by Mick Jagger & Keith Richards

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day.

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door - I must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black.

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not forsee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes.

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until the darkness goes.

Paint it, paint it black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun, blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

I wanna, I wanna, I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna paint it black
