Lyrics

Color Believed (One For the Mystery)

Shot it away, my love
The kind to never admit the role you played
To the crumble of little girls
And forward dreams
Jenny held it high, along
Before ‘I love you’ crossed my mind
Sometimes lost is what it seems

And this is one for the mystery
This is one for my 1-track mind
The fantasy asleep in your arms tonight

(You are) Pale in the afterglow
Growing pale to all I know
The rolling evening sweep we caught offside
I can pay a little bit
I can paint my arms in crinoline
But remember it, love
The sin here isn’t mine

What I saw were different eyes
Longer hair, cut to roughly TV size –
Jenny held it far, not far enough
I cut bruises for beauty, sipping blood
My cause could cut right through me
For rain, for calm, for love

And it was one for the mystery
It was one for a 1-track mind
It was what you had to do
What is it tonight?

Do you have something to say to me?
Do you have something?

I’m turning up the cold
Grieving a monster, hell everyone knows
The color believed is the one that falls apart
You shot it away
The comfort of debt
Long in my rearview, short on regret
And closer now to the place where breathing starts

It’s one more for the mystery
One more for my 1-track mind
Belief has come to crash over me tonight

Pale in the afterglow
Growing pale to all I know
The rolling evening sweep we caught offside
I can pay a little bit
I can paint my arms in crinoline
But remember it, love
The sin here isn’t mine
