I'm a painter and this song is comparing a lost love to the characteristics of alizarin crimson oil paint. Yes, I'm serious.
You'll never be my deep blue sea,
because you are so different,
I don't want to tell you this but,
your just a thin crimson.
You are, you are, you are
just a thin crimson.
And you are fading away,
I hope your okay and,
I hope you hear the crowd when they sing out loud and,
I hope it feels like the love we shared,
you know, the one you compared to a sunsong.
And you are, you are, you are just a thin crimson
and you are fading away,
and I will,
I will fall asleep in my garden,
and you will,
continue to sing.
Cuz you are, you are, you are, just a thin crimson
and I am moving away.
