Lyrics
In case you fancy coloring books
And lots of people do
I’ve a new one for you

A most unusual coloring book
The kind you’d never see
Crayons ready, very well
Begin to color me

These are the eyes that watched him as he walked away
Color them gray
This is the heart that thought he would always be true
Color it blue

These are the arms that held him and touched him then lost him somehow
Color them empty now
These are the beads I wore until she came between
If you like, color them green

This is the room I sleep in and walk in and weep in and hide in that nobody ever sees
Color it lonely, please
This is the man, the one, the one I depended upon
You must color him gone
He’s gone, color him gone

Català – El Meu Llibre Per Pintar
En cas que t’agradi pintar llibres
I una pila de gent ho fa
En tinc un de nou per a tu

Un llibre per pintar molt inusual
Del tipus que mai veuràs
Llàpis de cera preparats, molt bé
Comenceu a pintar-me

Aquests són els ulls que el miraven mentre s’allunyava
Pinta’ls de gris
Aquest és el cor que va pensar que ell sempre seria sincer
Pinta’l de blau

Aquestes són els braços que el subjectaven i el tocaven i després, d’alguna manera, el van perdre
Pinta’ls buits ara
Aquestes són les perles que jo portava fins que ella es va posar entre els dos
Si vols, pinta-les de verd

Aquesta és l’habitació on dormo i entro i ploro i m’amago per tal que ningú no em vegi mai
Pinta-la solitària, si us plau
Aquest és l’home, l’únic, l’únic del que jo depenia
Has de pintar-lo marxant
Ha marxat, pinta’l marxant
