Old favorites

Two favorite Rolling Stones songs came into my head today while riding on the bus in Buckhead. Ah, memories of disgruntlement...

Paint It Black*

I see a red door and I want it painted black.
No colors anymore I want them to turn black.
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes;
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back.
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away;
Like a new born baby it just happens ev'ry day.

I look inside myself and see my heart is black.
I see my red door and it has been painted black.
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts.
It's not easy facin' up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue.
I could not foresee this thing happening to you.
If I look hard enough into the settin' sun
My love will laugh with me before the mornin' comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black.
No colors anymore I want them to turn black.
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes;
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.
Hmm, hmm, hmm...

I wanna see it painted, painted black!
Black as night, black as coal!
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky!
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black!
Yeah!

* Some of these lyrics are debatable, since it is Mick singing and all. I used to sit around trying to figure them out. Different versions of the lyrics appear online, and I'm not sure which is right. It's all about the same though.

Ruby Tuesday*

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you...

Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothing’s gained
And nothing’s lost
At such a cost

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain’t life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you...

* If anybody knows how this wound up the name of a restuarant chain, let me know.
