Painting By Numbers

 

Dm                               Am7

You paint a black picture for painting by numbers

Am7                                       Dm

You’ve explained it’s not real art

G9                                       Dm
I say it’s a beginning, a good place to start

 

Dm

Blank canvas, splash of color

Am7
Sure, predictable and unoriginal

G9                                       Dm
like a dozen red roses and chocolate, says love

 

Em

I have been painting by numbers

Bm7
I can’t pretend to be a Jeff Koons

Em           A9                         Em
Which if I could, I would – send you over the moon
D

I can give you my heart

C                                            G F Em

Painting by numbers you say misses the mark

 

(melodic instrumental)

 

 

 

Em                                Bm7

You need to understand painting by numbers

Bm7                     Em
The coming of dreams and hopes

A9                                                       Em

I could paint out of the lines, and go broad with my strokes

 

Em                       Bm7

We could instead, paint the town red

D             C             B7
Modern, abstract, spray paint,

G                             A       B7
Graffiti let the paint flow,

 

Dm                          Am7
Or I could give chocolate and red roses,

Am7                         Dm

And see where this goes

G9                                       Dm
Painting by numbers going careful and slow (x3)

 

Em                               Bm7

You need to understand painting by numbers

Bm7                                     Em
The coming of dreams and hopes

A9                                            Em
I could paint out of the lines, and go broad with my strokes

 

G9                                       Dm
Painting by numbers going careful and slow
