"Colour Me In" as written by and Damien George Rice....
I tried to repress it, then I carried its crown
I reached out to undress it and love let me down
Love let me down

So I tried to erase it, but the ink bled right through
Almost drove myself crazy when these words led to you

And all these useless dreams of living alone
Like a dogless bone

So come let me love you
Come let me love you and then color me in

Well, I tried to control it and cover it up
I reached out to console it
It was never enough, never enough

So I tried to forget it, that was all part of the show
Told myself I'd regret it, but what do I know

About all these useless dreams of living alone
Like a dogless bone

So come let me love you
Come let me love you and then color me in

Come let me love you
Come let me take this through the end
Of all these useless dreams of living in all these useless dreams
All these useless dreams of living in all these old noes

Come let me love you
Come let me love you
Come let me love you
Come let me

    General CommentI think this song is about a man who has spent a lot of his life being disappointed in love. After being hurt he has built up walls and accepted the idea of being alone. That is until he meets someone who he can't help but fall in love with. This song is about the internal struggle that we face to let down our walls and accept love. To allow someone into our most intimate parts. To wipe away one's past and let love colour us in.
