Yesterday I was a young boy searching for my way
G/B Eb Bb C
Not knowing what I wanted living life from day to day
(2/4) Til (4/4) you came along
There was nothing but an empty space and a pain
Feels like coloured rain, tastes like coloured rain
D G G/F# Em G/D
(2/4) Bring on coloured (4/4) rain.
A/C# A/B A7 D Am/D D Am/D D Am/D D Am/D Gsus4
I see the sail of changing, filling with surprise
United with a feeling bringing love into my eyes.
