THERE SEEM TO BE SOME CLEVER INTRICACIES LYING HERE BESIDE ME
ONE OF THEM IS YOU AND ONE IS US
HAVE YOU NOTICED YET HOW OFTEN WE ARE TAKEN ABACK
BY THE DELICACY, THE POWER, AND THE TRUST

I DON’T KNOW IF WE WILL MAKE IT
I KNOW THAT AT TIMES I WOULD MUCH RATHER STOP
BUT IT’S ONLY BECAUSE I’VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO CALL A COLOR BY THE RIGHT NAME
CRAYOLA GAME IN MY HEART

THERE SEEM TO BE SOME DEFINITE LINES BEING DRAWN HERE
THOUGH IT’S CLEAR TO ME THAT YOU AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO STAY WITH-IN THE DOTS
WE CAN’T SEE THE PICTURE YET AND IT’S TOTALLY FRUSTRATING
THOUGH WE ARE LIVING IT CREATING IT RIGHT HERE ON THE SPOT

BUT I DO NOT KNOW IF WE’RE GONNA MAKE IT
I KNOW THAT AT TIMES WE WOULD BOTH MUCH RATHER STOP
BUT IT IS ONLY BECAUSE WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO CALL A COLOR BY THE RIGHT NAME
CRAYOLA GAME OF THE HEART
CRAYOLA GAME OF THE HEART

I TRIED TO FIT US IN PURPLE I TRIED TO FIT US IN BLUE
WELL I PUT ON MAGENTA AND YELLOW AND ALL THOSE HAZY ORCHID COLOR HUES
I CALLED IN THE BLACKS AND THE BROWNS AND THE GREENS
AND EVEN CHARTREUSE
BUT HOW CAN SOMETHING COME BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU'VE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE

ANDTHERE SEEM TO BE SOME CRYSTALLINE GEMS BEING FORMED HERE
RAGGED EDGES SCRATCH BUT DO NOT NECESSARILY BLEED
THE CONTAINER’S TORN AND THE CRAYONS ARE ESCAPING
WE’LL GRAB ON WE’LL HOLD ON FOR AS LONG AS WE NEED

AND I DO NOT KNOW IF WE WILL MAKE IT
I KNOW THAT AT TIME WE WOULD ALL MUCH RATHER STOP
BUT IT IS ONLY BECAUSE WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO CALL A COLOR BY THE RIGHT NAME
CRAYOLA GAME OF THE HEART
CRAYOLA GAME OF THE HEART

I’VE TRIED TO PUT US IN PURPLE I TRIED TO PUT US IN BLUE
I TRIED TO PUT ON MAGENTA AND YELLOW AND ALL THOSE HAZY ORCHID COLOR HUES
I CALLED IN THE BLACKS AND THE BROWNS AND THE GREENS
AND EVEN CHARTREUSE
BUT HOW CAN SOMETHING COME BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU GOT NOTHING TO LOSE
BUT HOW CAN SOMETHING COME BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU GOT NOTHING TO LOSE…

COMMENT:
Love it,  Love it,  Love it.
Love singing it with an audience.
I feel at home - like we're dolphins riding the waves together.
