"Paint It Black (Rolling Stones cover)" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
I see a red door
And I want to paint it black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars
And they're all painted black
With flowers and my love
Both never to come back

I people turn their heads
And quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens everyday

I look inside myself
See my heart is black
I see my red door
And I wanna paint it black

Maybe then I'll fade away
Not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up
When your whole world is black

No more will my green sea
Will turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee
This thing happening to you

If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes

Want to see it painted
Painted black, black as night
Want to see it painted
Painted black, black as coal
...
