lyrics

In the Rainbow Casino hotel room
Where the black, vaudevillian mirrors reflect the gloom;
Mr. Kim is downstairs in the lobby spinning time;
And me, I'm looking out over the mountains with worry on my mind.

And I hear her say, "I'm here,
The color of your heart."
And who she is is not clear;
She won't fall away
When I'm standing in the shadows
Of my better self
And when I turn to the greying sunset
She won't let me go.

See my soundless, ticking wristwatch passing days.
Feel the pains that came and haven't gone away.
See the once-familiar faces, they're all nameless now;
All of those who believed in me and how I've let them down.

And I hear her say, "I'm here,
The color of your heart."
And who she is is not clear;
She won't fall away
When I'm standing in the shadows
Of my former self
And when I turn to the greying sunset
She won't let me go.
