Well if I spell it out
If I get it out
Will you hear me when I tell you about
What I have to say before it gets too late
It’s not as easy as I said it’d be
But there’s something right about you and me
Something right about you and me
Well you’re the color of a burning brook
You’re the color of a sideways look from an undercover cop in a comic book
You’re the color of a storm in June
You’re the color of the moon
You’re the color of the night
That’s right
Color of a fight
You move me
You’re the color of the colored part of The Wizard of Oz movie

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
We’re like 40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet
But will
And I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
Well be livin’ ever after
Happily

All the boys taking you for granted
Tell you what they want with their eyes all slanted
I don’t like the way they look at you
I don’t like the way they talk to
I don’t like the way they talk to you
I wouldnt let ’em talk to you like that
Put ’em up high
Teach for the ceiling
Tell them that I’ma walk, damn it, I’m real
And it ain’t no crime, it’s just dreams we’re stealing
Anything to get more of this feeling
You take the high and I’ll take the low
We’ll get there before you know
We ain’t got no time to waste
We got too much life to taste

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
And 40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet but will
And I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
Well be livin ever after
Happily

Sometimes you remind me of a moonbeam
On the ghost of a moonbeam out on the beach
Down by the coast
Slip into Manila
Like the most
Beautiful thing
I’ve ever seen
Come out tonight, come out with me, baby
We’ll throw the careful into the crazy
Turn the sky black into a sky blue
Turn the close shave into a hoo-hoo
What I say is true
Make a fire, gotta burn a few
Make a fire, gotta burn a few
We can do what we want to do

We’re like Romeo and Juliet
40 dogs
Cigarettes
We’re like good times that haven’t happened yet
But will
I can tell you where we’re gonna be
When the whole world falls to the sea
We’ll be livin’ ever after
Happily
