I was born colorful
don't paint me black

paint me green
and i would go wild
paint me white
and I'll go senile
paint me blue
and you'll find no end
paint me brown
and i just won't bend
paint me red
and my heart is yours
paint me yellow
and I'll be lost
give me colors
and I'll be bright
paint me black
and i am out of sight!!!

My Night and Day...

Often, sitting alone at night
when all is dark ,in a metaphorical sense
'cause day is when the hopes are bright
and night when hatred is intense
I often look at the faded pictures
of things I lost on my way here
reading the clues in those silent scriptures
of the mystery that will never be clear
of life, and things it promised me
and where I slipped to deserve these tears...

I wish i had looked around and seen
you watching me with loving eyes
and how you make my tears giggle
and make me smile with innocent lies
I wish I had known whats night and day
I wish I had seen you shine bright
and then I had known what a fool I was
to be black when I was being painted white...
