lyrics

I washed my hands but they’re still covered with paint
Got all these walls I want to redo

Try to replace the red with the blue
Oh the blues are always purple to me

Just you wait and see
How years tumble up onto one another so fast
People you know no longer show
Sky pales from blue to a red glow
oh the blues are always purple to me
The blues are always purple

So many stories to tell it's true, it's true
the broken spoke, the open road, that time we kissed under a sky so new
Or the star on my face, the glitter in bed, how the fog rolled in
I didn't want to hear, I didn’t want to hear what you said

The sun can't help but turn everything red

I still want to paint these walls blue
Try to replace the red with the blue
Oh the blues are always purple to me
The blues are always purple

Night turns play me an upbeat song or a few,
country picker, beatbox, some rock yeah yeah we’ll roll
You might get older but some things never get old
Like the sun can't help but turn everything red
Oh time to paint these walls blue

(The blues are always purple to me)
Blues are always purple

Different smiles might show up through the dark laughing
I still want to paint these walls blue
Oh even I'm not the person I once knew
yeah the blues are always purple to me
(The blues are always purple to me)
The blues are always purple to me
