Heather Nova — Paint The World lyrics

It's like a chain reaction
Misunderstanding every word
It's like a train to nowhere
And everyone gets hurt

And maybe if I paint the world.. Black
And maybe if I paint the world.. White
Cause you don't seem to see it quite like I do
And we don't seem to see it eye to eye

We never go the distance
We just [..] in the dirt
And I could say I'm sorry
But I want you to say it first

And maybe if I paint the world.. Black
And maybe if I paint the world.. White
Cause you don't seem to see it quite like I do
And we don't seem to see it eye to eye

This is so stupid
This is all so lame
This is so stupid
Playing these games
Everything is unfocused
Everything is stained
This is so stupid
Playing these games

Well I could learn to fake it
And you could learn to bruise
And maybe we can make it
But then it's easier to lose

And maybe if I paint the world.. Black
And maybe if I paint the world.. White
Cause you don't seem to see it quite like I do
And we don't seem to see it eye to eye

This is so stupid
This is all so lame
This is so stupid
Playing these games
Everything is unfocused
Everything's in pain
This is so stupid

Maybe if I paint the world.. Black
And maybe if I paint the world.. White
Cause you don't seem to feel it quite like I do
And we don't seem to see it eye to eye
