David Byrne - The Painting Lyrics




Oh I will set - my easel out
And lay the paints - all round about

From dark to light - from red to blue
From hot to cool - in every hue

With oil and brush - and when applied
Confronts the mind - delights the eye
With modern words - and modern line
In time the surface come to life

As green becomes the happy wife
Who joins her spouse on pallet knife

They start to sing - they blend and shine
They run and drip - to reflect the light

With oil and brush - and when applied
Confronts the mind - delights the eye
With modern words - and modern line
And soon the surface comes to life
The alchemy - the mixer's art
The colours blend - inside our hearts
