lyrics

Watching your face in its transform
Gathering colours up for the storm
The strengthening winds signal the change
A hammering head and biblical rains

A-ah your scarlet singing sweet revenge
That gold just for effect
A-ah that violet is your variation on the blues

Now I can look but I don't see
You're still holding on to the mystery
The deeper you go the harder it gets
The cumulonimbus gives nothing less

Than every shade of grey
Your crimson burns away
A-ah and that all ends the prelude
Here's the black

(Solo)

A-ah your scarlet singing sweet revenge
That gold just for effect
That violet is your variation on the blues
Violet is your variation on the blues
Violet is your variation on the blues
A-ah!
