SWALLOWED

8. SWALLOWED
music and lyrics by lauren nicole clare

i paint in shades of blue
while you
paint my walls of red
and i’m swallowed
by the fire of your red
and i’ll follow the red of your fire.

your red’s not like my own
it’s richness i’ll never know,
but i’ll touch it to know how it feels
and i’ll love it,
but soon i’ll hate it.

and you say i’m beautiful in all ways,
but you look only with your eyes.
you insist my reluctance is only my fear of life
but you’re wrong,
you’re wrong.

cemented in all your ways
i found you miles away from where we started
to where i’ve never been
from where we started, i’ve never been
and time has come for me to go
and find my strength deep on my own
so don’t follow,
don’t follow.

cause’ you say i’m beautiful in all ways,
but you look only with your eyes.
you insist my reluctance is only my fear of life
but you’re wrong,
you’re wrong.
and you say i’m beautiful in all ways,
but you look only with your eyes.
you insist my reluctance is only my fear of life
but you’re wrong,
you’re wrong.

i paint in flames of blue
don’t swallow, don’t follow.
