"Colors and the Kids" as written by and Marshall Cat Power....
It must be the colors
And the kids
That keep me alive
'Cause the music is boring me to death

It must just be the colors
And the kids that keep me alive
'Cause I'd want to go right away
To a January night
I built a shack with an old friend
He was someone I could learn from
Someone I could become

Will you meet me down
On a sandy beach
We can roll up our jeans
So the tide won't get us below the knees

Yellow hair
You are a funny bear
Yellow hair
You are such a funny bear
Slender fingers
Would hold me slender limbs would hold me
And you could say my name
Like you knew my name

I could stay here
Become someone different
I could stay here
Become someone better

It's so hard to go in the city
'Cause you want to say hello to everybody
It's so hard to go into the city
'Cause you want to say hey I love you to everybody
When we were teenagers we wanted to be the sky
Now all we want to do is go to red places
And try to stay outta hell

It must be the colors
And the kids
That keep me alive
'Cause the music is boring me to death

It must just be the colors
And it must just be the kids
That keep me alive on this January night.

Yellow hair
You are a funny bear
Yellow hair
You are such a funny bear

    General CommentDave Grohl:

    "One of the most beautiful songs I've heard is Cat Power's The color and the kids from her album Moonpix. That song is so heart wrenchingly beautiful and romantic-it makes me want to kidnap her and run away and hide forever."
