My Aching Quotes: I WAS THERE AT THE STATION WHEN THE COLOURS COMBINED I'D BEEN TRYING TO CHANGE 'EM ALL WITH MY MIND I'M OUT OF FIRE WITH THE CUPBOARDS BARE MY LOVE LEFT AND I GOT NOTHING TO SHARE SO I PUT MY LAST DOLLAR ON A RAILROAD TRACK BUT NO TRAIN CAME SO I TOOK IT BACK I PUT IT IN A GUMBALL CRACKER JACK PRIZE I WON A MOOD RING AND IT WAS JUST MY SIZE IT SAID, WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? SOME HAVE IT ALL, STILL IT AIN'T ENOUGH I WAS ACHING FOR LOVE, EVEN THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH A YOUNG WOMAN WALKED INTO THAT LONESOME PLACE SHE SAID I KNOW THAT LOOK, I'VE SEEN YOUR FACE I'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE, IT'S A TERRIBLE PLACE NOW I'M BOUND FOR GLORY, I'M OVERDUE I'M SICK OF SEEING RED AND FEELING BLUE WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? I'VE BEEN TRYING TO KEEP YOU OFF MY MIND I'M TRYING TO KEEP THESE COLOURS ALL IN LINE I'M A HOSTAGE IN A FORGOTTEN WAR, TIED TO A ROCK ON THE OCEAN FLOOR TO BE HONEST, WITH YOU, I FORGOT WHAT I WAS FIGHTING FOR PEOPLE TURN GREEN WITH ENVY, BLACK WITH HATE WHY CAN'T WE ALL JUST COMMUNICATE? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? AND MY HEART KEEPS BEATING LIKE AN OLD BASS DRUM THERE'S PLENTY MORE OF THAT WHERE THAT CAME FROM AND I'LL STILL LAY IT ON THE LINE WHEN THE RIGHT TIME COMES AND EVEN IF I'M SCARED TO DEATH, WHITE WITH FEAR I'VE BEEN BLACK AND BLUE, I'VE EVEN DISAPPEARED WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? I WAS THERE AT THE STATION WHEN THE COLOURS ALIGNED AND IN THAT LONESOME PLACE I FELT PEACE IN MY MIND I'M ON A GOLDEN WAVELENGTH, SUNSET HUE I'M SICK OF SEEING RED AND FEELING BLUE WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? OOOH... WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? OOOH... WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? OOOH... WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU? OOOH... WHAT COLOUR ARE YOU?
