Music and Lyrics ©2000 Joe Swenson

I walk in…
There you are at your canvas again
Painting by number a picture for me
One of just how things ought to be.
I’m not trying to criticize. Your color scheme’s fine.
I really love how you keep between the lines.
I’m not sure I can pay or if it’s worth the price
But, who am I to say,
you’re a much better artist than I.

Here I go again…
Off chasing some fool rainbow’s end
You wonder out loud - “Will the tune ever change”
You’ve heard it so long now, it all sounds the same
I’m not trying to criticize. Your melody’s fine.
I really love to read between the lines.
Its not worth what I pay for the time that goes by.
But who am I to say,
you’re a much better artist than I.

If you only knew just what I could do….
I’d tear it all down and I’d build it again,
just for you.
If you could just see If it were up to me…
I’d look in your eyes, and give you the sky
and we’d live happily...

Its always the same when you get right down.
Me with my head in the air,
you with your feet on the ground.
It’s not going to change,
but some days we come ‘round
To that one common place, where we can face
each other’s dreams in-the-round.

Let’s try it again
Go back to the part where I walk in.
There in your hand is a portrait of me.
It went for a song but then nothing’s for free.
Why do we criticize the difficult times
With nothing more than some well rehearsed lines?
What price must we pay, can this love survive?
God only knows, he’s a much better artist than I.

If you only knew just what I could do….
I’d tear it all down and I’d build it again,
just for you.
If you could just see If it were up to me…
I’d look in your eyes, and give you the sky
and we’d live happily...
