lyrics

Yellow
The color of the sun that burns above
Staining all the world with light and
Shadow
Where you've placed your throne
And though it cost my soul I'll
Follow

There's not a rule I wouldn't break
There's no friend I won't forsake
There's not a risk I wouldn't take for you
Just see me
See me

Violet
The color of the robes I wore for you
But I never even caught your eye and I'm
Frighted
That you've turned from me
And another's come between
But I'll fight it

There's not a rule I wouldn't break
There's no friend I won't forsake
There's not a risk I wouldn't take for you
Just see me
See me

Pale white
The color of my arms that reach for you
Though you've left me here in the
Moonlight
Willingly in your sway
My own weakness burned away
An ancient rite

There's not a rule I wouldn't break
There's no friend I won't forsake
There's not a risk I wouldn't take for you
Just see me
See me

Rose red
The color of the blood I bled for you
Now silently I wait among
The dead
But I'll be with you evermore
The plague outside your door
Your red death

There's not a rule I wouldn't break
There's no friend I won't forsake
There's not a risk I wouldn't take for you
Just see me
See me
