"Colour Me" as written by and Dorothy Elliot Allison....
Now I'm sliding
It's intriguing
So young yet
Too old to learn

That summer is the thirst
The river always runs dry first

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

As the tides they
Draw and close
And the seasons
Turn again

Will the moon still
Wax and wane?
Will you always
Color the day?

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

Now I'm sliding
It's intriguing
This is heaven now)
So young yet
Too old to learn

That summer is the thirst
The river always runs dry first

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

You're in heaven
This is heaven now
You're in heaven

    General CommentI love this song! This is how I understand it:

    Now I'm sliding, it's intriguing
    So young yet too old to learn
    That summer is the thirst
    The river always runs dry first
    You're in heaven
    This is heaven now
    You're in heaven

    ---Stubbornness of youth, the youth think they already know everything hence, they refuse to be taught the truth about pretty much everything. Summer being something they crave, cause school's over, and they can do whatever they want but it never lasts that long. And being young, feels like heaven since you don't have to experience all the real and fucked up problems of being in the "real" world

    As the tides they draw and close
    And the seasons turn again
    Will the moon still wax and wane?
    Will you always colour the day?
    ---But as the days come and go, eventually, you're gonna have to face the real world and you won't always be young and full of joy (colour)
