shades of michaelangelo lyrics – belinda carlisle

a still-life portrait, a view from my window
touched by innocence now fading away
into a quiet storm of the tears of the angels
falling around me as i’m watching the days

i frame colors of p*ssion against a fading sky
with a stroke of love on the canvas of my soul
i’m painting a perfect world with shades of michaelangelo
with each promise made to every heart that knows
we can live in a perfect world in shades of michaelangelo

a seed of hope grows in my garden
i feel the earth beneath my feet
running through my mind are dreams of a future
where all of this world works in harmony

i frame colors of p*ssion against a fading sky
with a stroke of love on the canvas of my soul
i’m painting a perfect world with shades of michaelangelo
with each promise made to every heart that knows
we can live in a perfect world in shades of michaelangelo

i hear songs of children echo in the sky
i hear songs of children, a tomorrow so bright

with a stroke of love on the canvas of my soul
i’m painting a perfect world with shades of michaelangelo
is a promise made to every heart that knows
we can live in a perfect world in shades of michaelangelo
shades of michaelangelo, shades of michaelangelo

i hear songs of children echo in the sky
i hear songs of children echo in the sky
i hear songs of children echo in the sky
