"Paint By Number Heart" as written by and Martha Johnson....
I could tell it from the start
(Tell it from the start)
That you wanted me to be
(Wanted me to be)
A certain kind of girl
(A kind of girl)
That I know just isn't me
(Well I know just isn't me)

Well, I've gone along this far
And I've tried to play the part
But now you'd better listen
I haven't got a paint-by-number heart

There are things I've gotta do
(Things I gotta do)
That I've put off much too long
(I've put off much too long)
I'm tired of always asking
(I'm always asking)
Well, if those things are right or wrong
(If those things are right or wrong)

Oh well, I've got to face the facts
Try and make a brand new start now
Walk out and don't look back
'Cause I haven't got a paint-by-number heart

Your star is too restricted
And your moons are black and grey
No matter what I say or do
You colour it the wrong way
You're green with envy, red with rage
You change from day to day
The situation's dangerous
I gotta get away

I've tried to shape my life
(I shape my life)
So there's room enough for you
(Room enough for you)
Mind if I say you're everything
(You're everything)
Well, now you know it isn't true
(Well, you know it isn't true)

Well, I don't know if you'll find a girl
To be your piece of art
So sad to say it won't be me
'Cause I haven't got a paint-by-number heart

I haven't got a paint-by-number heart
I haven't got a paint-by-number heart
I haven't got a paint-by-number heart
Oh no, I haven't got a paint-by-number heart!
