~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE 1:
Your paint dries, the canvas smiles, with two eyes you lift yourself up
Stroke your skin there are teeth marks to be sure
Maybe we're best close to the ground maybe angels drag us down
I wonder which part of this will leave a scar

CHORUS 1:
Dip your hands in colours while the young night flutters in on you
And finger paint me pictures of all you see
No matter what they say you'll always be
Faithfully dangerous, lost and lovely
So beautiful to me, I'm not too blind too see

VERSE 2:
Red is blood, black is sky, white's the dove that longs to fly
You set it free and it beats its wings in me
It leaves us at a loss for words, is that me now in your arms
We cradle together and fall down on our knees

CHORUS 2:
Let the whole world drift downstream, we'll always be different
Swim the silent slipstream inside of me
No matter what they say you'll always be
Faithfully dangerous, lost and lovely
So beautiful to me, I'm not too blind too see

REPEAT VERSE 2

INSTRUMENTAL HALF-VERSE

REPEAT CHORUS 1

VERSE 3:
Red is blood, black is sky, white's the dove that longs to fly
You set it free and it beats its wings in me
It leaves us at a loss for words, is that me now in your arms
The heart that beats is yours inside me
The heart that beats is yours inside me
The heart that beats is yours inside me
Red is love, black is night, I'm drunk with angels taking flight
The heart that beats is yours inside me
The heart that beats is yours inside me
The heart that beats is yours inside me...
