Coastal blue

I went rose gold blonde for a summer in the distant past
I wore salsa red to a wedding and clashed with the flowers
And as the sunset falls in the fading light
I’ll be lost on the railway lines
Working overtime
On another song ’til my train comes past again

I painted my walls Princeton orange until the council came and saw it
I sprayed my guitar olive black and joined a local metal outfit
And as the carriages disappear from sight
I’ll be lost on the railway lines
Working overnight
On another song for the sunrise

I’ve felt woodland green ever since I can remember
I’ve felt coastal blue, midnight blue, dolphin blue and all the blues
I’ve felt R15 G20 and B196
I’ve felt Pantone 655 and that’s as blue as I can get
And as the city wakes to the morning light
I’ll be painting outside the lines
Working 5 to 9
On another song for the sunrise

I’ve been lost navigating from one mistake to the next
I went dizzy figureskating around and around
