Red Song

in the white i wake up
in the white i die
and somewhere in the red i see your eyes

and in the green i’m out walking
and in the green i live
but somewhere in the red i have your lips

i dreamed of eyes…
i dreamed of ears…

and in the blue i’m rising like an ocean
and in the blue it’s down i sink
but somewhere in the red i taste your skin

the girls they loved his face
cut their fingers when they could not look away
but joseph never saw a thing
his eyes were wrapped in all of these dreams
in coloured cloth and autumn grain
coloured cloth covered with bloody stain

no love, without the pain
but we learn to love again.

i dreamed of mine
i dreamed of yours

and in the black I feel you
and in the black I sense
that somewhere in the red the colours end
