colors lyrics – april smith and the great picture show

you’ve been far away from me
another land across the sea
and all this time my heart’s been breaking
just waiting round and aching

for a letter or a telegram
telling me how sweet i am
you swear your heart will never roam
so til you come back home

i’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
i’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

i’m hoping you return the glow
i’m just making sure you know
that no matter how, no matter when
you come back to me

you’ll realize this love is strong
as it has been all along
for miles and miles can’t come between
the kind of love we’ve seen

i’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
i’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

i’ll wear your colors my dear
until you’re standing right here
next to the one who adores you
whose heart is beating for you
like a lighthouse guides a shipwrecked sailor safely from the sea
i’ll wear your colors til you come back home to me

i’ll wear you colors til you come back home to me

i’ll wear you colors til you come back home to me
