Colour Me Pink - Poem by Rachel Shaw

They coloured me pink, and played with my hair
Took me to every corner of the world, but do they care?
To the wicked ways of the green fairy, and wasn't she exquisite?
Through hazy eyes, I'll admit it
Do I even care?

So baby, what's the use now?
Of sleeping through our dreams
So baby, don't get used to this nothingness
because nothing is ever as it seems

And I can't use excuses no more.
I just don't love you anymore
I won't use excuses no more.

So here we all are now, perched in the trees
we're dotting our i's and crossing our t's
'cause we're just one happy, dysfunctional family
that I just can't leave..no, no, no.

So baby, what's the use now?
Of sleeping through our dreams
So baby, don't get used to this nothingness
because nothing is ever as it seems

And I can't use excuses no more.
I just don't love you anymore
I won't use excuses no more.
