Lyrics

The Paint Never Dries

Written By: Linda Rose Parkes

The Paint Never Dries

The leaves are turning
But paint never dries
On all of the things
I have done to you

I see you breaking
When the strain gets too high
With all of the times
You’ve come through for me

I watch you sleeping
The moon sheds its light
On all the love
I never spoke to you

The wound is healing
But the blood never dries
On all of the badness
This world does to us

Should you leave me
No words could ever try
To undo the silence
You’d bequeath to me

I watch you sleeping
The moon sheds its light
On all the love
I never spoke to you

I never spoke to you

With the night drawn in
I see you clearly again
What anger and strife
Made me treat you this way

What madness in me
Wants to ride us each time
To the furthermost edge
Of love’s invisible line

Of love’s invisible line

The leaves are turning
And the paint never dries
On the things I am learning
About me and you

I hear you breathing
The trees start to sigh
Carried on the wing of love’s best promises

I watch you sleeping
The moon sheds its light
On all the love
I never spoke to you

I never spoke to you
