"Colours" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
You mean a lot to me
You've got a heart of gold
Everything falls apart
Leaves you in the cold

Purpose is scaring me
What if I can't see mine
Love on the filthy streets is so divine

You are the color my dear
You are the color my dear

You mean a lot to me
You've got a heart of gold

Once I have found the words
I'll loosen my hold

You are the color my dear
You are the color my dear
You are the color my dear
You are the color my dear

Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby
Fill your life with something else baby

    General CommentHe thinks he loves her, but he's not sure so he wants her to find someone/thing else for her to be distracted by so then he has no choice but to find someone else

    General CommentProbably my favourite Editors song, literally. The words, the atmosphere it brings. The simplicity of it. If you've ever deeply loved someone, you'll know what I mean. The song also makes you think of the importance and the value of life. What an incredible feeling this song gives me.

    General CommentMy favourite b-side by far. Tom says so much in so few words. When you meet someone really special, someone who is so kind and selfless and loyal that you feel like they're too good for you. You almost adore them like a deity, as if they were miles above you. I've had a couple of friends like that, and I respected them so much that when I thought of all the times I had been mean or selfish while they were always ready to give you a hand I realized that they were much better people than I was, and it made me feel worthless in comparision. But it's not envy at all. More like adoration, as I said. And you want to tell them how much they mean to you, to tell them that you'd do anything for them, but you never get the chance.

    I'm not sure if I'm making any sense. But that's the way I feel when I hear the song.
