Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Whomever wants you alone
Whomever wants you atones
It's with this prayer I've sewn
Whomever wants you alone

(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
A vast amount of the time slipped away
A vast amount of the time slipped away

I gave you all, always have (and always)
I gave you all as I was asked (as always)
As pieces of [?] fall from grasp
Whomever asks for more than that
A camp beholds me

(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
A vast amount of the time slipped away
A vast amount of the time slipped away

(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
(Colour of your love)
And the colour of your love is gray
A vast amount of the time slipped away
