Colors

One of my top favorite songs.

(By Halsey)


Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so
You said your mother only smiled on her TV show
You’re only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope
I hope you make it to the day you’re 28 years old

-

Dragging your knees on the bathroom floor,

streaking the tiles with paint,

Looking up at the mirror, but it's not your face.

The blaring from a different room

Filling you with something that's not hope.

-

You’re dripping like a saturated sunrise
You’re spilling like an overflowing sink
You’re ripped at every edge but you’re a masterpiece
And now you’re tearing through the pages and the ink

-

Water ripples from your ankles

You feel like flying to the moon.

Your brain is exploding with thoughts, boom.

Now you can see every fucking color in the world.

When you go under.

-

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I’m covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
And it’s blue
And it’s blue

-

Hands grabbing, hands fumbling,

Throw it back on.

Tears and a mess underneath,

Pent-up energy fuels your rage.

-

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he’s so devoid of color
He don’t know what it means
And he’s blue
And he’s blue

-

Your mind is no longer your own,

Dripping out of your head,

Are your thoughts, melting sunshine, making it red.

The pill makes everything foggy, but it's better than the world of color,

too much and too bright.

-

You were a vision in the morning
When the light came through
I know I’ve only felt religion when I’ve lied with you
You said you’ll never be forgiven ’til your boys are too
And I’m still waking every morning but it’s not with you

-

Take my hand, yawn

Look me in the eyes.

Those smiling lips, raised and whispering a breath

Then it's gone, the chill of the winter

-

You’re dripping like a saturated sunrise
You’re spilling like an overflowing sink
You’re ripped at every edge but you’re a masterpiece
And now you’re tearing through the pages and the ink

-

Moving at a quick pace,

Now you're weaving through the galaxy,

Holding to the edge,

Careful, don't let go.

-

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I’m covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
And it’s blue
And it’s blue

-

Tears, tears, all you know is tears.

Covered in them, drowning in it

Pitching your eyes closed

Poking at your neck.

-

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he’s so devoid of color
He don’t know what it means
And he’s blue
And he’s blue

-

Nothing left, it's all gone by.

Seasons change, and seasons die.

But what's left is just a lie.

A heartache, all confusion, yet you still try.

-

You were red and you liked me ’cause I was blue
But you touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky
And you decided purple just wasn’t for you

-

It's funny how everything you touched

Turned into your kryptonite

Only pulling at your boundaries,

But it just wasn't enough, was it?

-

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I’m covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
And it’s blue
And it’s blue

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he’s so devoid of color
He don’t know what it means
And he’s blue
And he’s blue

Everything is blue
Everything is blue
Everything is blue
Everything is blue
