How do I, from this multicoloured sea,

Pick droplets of colour to describe you and me?


Do I pick yellow for the happy memories

And colour the sad ones with blue?

Or do I just paint a rainbow

To describe everything we’ve been through?


But a rainbow isn’t enough!

Seven colours don’t suffice

To show you all the things

That I feel deep inside.


‘Cause though my heart is broken

And it feels kinda blue,

There’s a new, rosy glow around it

And that feels nice too!


But this isn’t about me,

It’s about me and you.

Seven colours can’t describe us,

Neither can twenty-two.


But darling, don’t fret. I have a solution, you see.

It’d take the entire sea to describe you and me.
