See a red door and I want it painted black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes

With flowers and my love both never to come back
Like a new born baby it just happens every day
I look inside myself and see my heart is black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts

I want to see it painted painted, painted black, oh baby
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
If I look hard enough into the setting sun

Black as night, black as coal
Painted, painted, painted black oh baby
