"The Colour Of Love" as written by Andy Julian Paul, Toby Matthew Jepson and Bruce Dickinson....
You take my nerves, you bring me sorrow
I reach out for a hatchet seeking entry
Your time is running out, there's no excuse

And after all you smile
You try in making fun of me
You're simply irresistible
The colour of your hair is the colour of love

Make me believe that
It all lies in our hands
And when you close your eyes for me
I seem to understand

I must admit I miss your smile
But all that lingers on is in my head
All that's left of you, memories

So I descend - le souterrain
And I tear down the wall that hides my love
You are still beautiful
The colour of your hair is the colour of love

Make me believe that
It all lies in our hands
And when you close your eyes for me
I seem to understand

    General Comment"the colour of your hair is the colour of love"
    that line hurts every time i hear it...i've had sooooo many people think they were in love with me, only to learn later, much later, that they were in love with the IDEA of me...the idea of having a natural redhead for a girlfriend...telling me they loved me when really they hardly knew me...

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs ever.
    I'd like to think of it as a love song, but something tell's me its more for someone that's been forgotten.

    General CommentMany of Beborn Betons songs are based on horror movies or have similar themes. You can apply a pretty literal meaning to the words. I see the song as being sort of like the scene in The Shining when the guy hacks through the door with an axe to get to his wife. He says he is reaching for a hatchet... seeking entry... tearing down walls to get to (her)... So I can see him singing the song holding her head or hair in his hands.
