The Colour Of My Love


Songwriters: David Foster, Arthur Janov
Performer: Celine Dion
Category: Contemporary

Celine Dion released the album The Colour of My Love, containing this same title track, in 1993. It really propelled her into international fame, and won her awards from around the world for the album itself and various songs on it.

It is also a landmark album in another aspect: in the dedication section of the liner notes, she made it known for the first time publicly that she was in love with her agent, Rene Angelil.

[In case you're wondering why it is not listed as "The Color of My Love," you will note that since both David Foster and Celine Dion are Canadians, the word is spelled in the Canadian/British version: "colour."]

LYRICS

I'll paint my mood in shades of blue
Paint my soul to be with you
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth to my own
I'll draw your arms around my waist
Then all doubt I shall erase
I'll paint the rain that softly lands on your wind-blown hair
I'll trace a hand to wipe out your tears
A look to calm your fears
A silhouette of dark and light
While we hold each other oh so tight

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint the truth
Show how I feel
Try to make you completely real
I'll use a brush so light and fine
To draw you close and make you mine

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Swearing that we'll never part
That's the colour of my love

I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn so much to try
And with this ring our lives will start
Swearing that we'll never part
I offer what you cannot buy
Devoted love until we die
