Eighty years, an old lady now, sitting on the front porch Watching the clouds roll by They remind her of her lover, how he left her, and of times long ago When she used color carelessly, painted his portrait A thousand times--or maybe just his smile-- And she and her canvas would follow him wherever they would go 'Cause they were painters and they were painting themselves A lovely world Oil-streaked daisies covered the living room walls He put water-colored roses in her hair He said, "Love, I love you, I want to give you mountains, the sunshine The sunset too I just want to give a world as beautiful as you are to me." 'Cause I'm a painter and I want to paint you A lovely world So they sat down and made a drawing of their love, an art to live by They painted every passion, every home, created every beautiful child In the winter they were weavers of warmth In summer they were carpenters of love They thought blue prints were too sad so they made them yellow 'Cause they were painters and they had painted themselves A lovely world Until one day the rain fell as thick as black oil And in her heart she knew something was wrong She went running through the orchard screaming, "No God, don't take him from me!" But by the time she got there, she feared he already had gone
