Surrounded By Love

As the years go on, and the beauty fades
They are arm in arm, like nothing has changed
And as he hovers close, I can hear what she says
She says - just as sweetly as the very first day...
 "Paint me with your love 
  make me shiny and new
  give me all your colours
  it's what I dream of
  I'll be painted, sated
  in layers of love."

And as he hears her words, I can see he smiles
Like a thousand kisses float behind his eyes
Then he draws her closer, as he's always done
And says "You're already perfect, darling, just as you are"
  Oh, to be painted in love, 
  to be always shiny and new
  to have beautiful colours
  it's what I dream of
  I'd be blissfully sated,
  in layers of love.

But time keeps moving on, and love's dreams start to fade
I'm living this life alone, and I can't see how it will change 
And sometimes when I'm blue, travelling on my own
I realise it just won't do, that I've got something wrong.
  So I'll paint myself in love, 
  I'll be forever shiny and new
  I'll choose any colours
  That I dream of
  I'll go about painted, sated, yes
  I'll live my life beautifully decorated
  I'll thrill to the feel of it every day
  You'll see by my smile, by the look on my face
  That I'm covered, surrounded, laughing aloud
  In layers of love.
