[Verse 1]
Dm                       Bb
  I see a red door and I want it painted black.
Dm                     A
  No colours anymore I want them to turn black.

[Chorus 1]
Dm    C      F          C          Dm
  I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes.
Dm    C      F       C       G               A
  I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.


[Verse 2]
Dm                         Bb
  I see a line of cars and they're all painted black.
Dm                              A
  With flowers and my love both never to come back.

[Chorus 2]
Dm    C      F          C          Dm
  I see people turn their heads and quickly look away.
Dm    C      F       C       G               A
  Like a newborn baby it just happens every day.


[Verse 3]
Dm                         Bb
  I look inside myself and see my heart is black.
Dm                          A
  I see my red door, I must have it painted black

[Chorus 3]
Dm    C      F          C          Dm
  Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts.
Dm    C      F       C       G               A
  It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black.


[Verse 4]
Dm                             Bb
  No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue.
Dm                              A
  I could not foresee this thing happening to you.

[Chorus 4]
Dm    C      F          C          Dm
  If I look hard enough into the setting sun
Dm    C      F       C       G               A
  My love will laugh with me before the morning comes.


[Verse 5]
Dm                       Bb
  I see a red door and I want it painted black.
Dm                     A
  No colours anymore I want them to turn black.

[Chorus 5]
Dm    C      F          C          Dm
  I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes.
Dm    C      F       C       G               A
  I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.
