You painted yourself, a thousand times,
As if you never got it right.
You lay awake, with a mirror above your bed.
Your body was your cage, loneliness your friend.

And they say, life is a lion, love is despair.
Your heart never stopped trying, when you cut off your hair.
A monkey on your shoulder, blood and broken bones,
Your colours were bolder, than the brightest rainbow.
The brightest rainbow.

She says if the earth shatters, and we're thrown to the sea,
Nothing else matters, just home-bound, carry me.
And if you're unsure of where to go,
Just ask somebody, where is Mexico.

And they say, life is a lion, love is despair.
Your heart never stopped trying, when you cut off your hair.
A monkey on your shoulder, blood and broken bones,
Your colours were bolder, than the brightest rainbow.
The brightest rainbow.

When you lived, you danced the pain,
Your heart it did burn.
You said, "When I die, may it be sweet.
May I never return."

And they say, life is a lion, love is despair.
Your heart never stopped trying, when you cut off your hair.
A monkey on your shoulder, blood and broken bones,
Your colours were bolder, than the brightest rainbow.
The brightest rainbow.
