Lyrics:There's a noise upstairs in the attic
it's the shuffle of worn out shoes
and the scent
of the oil and brushes
drifts down like a pale perfume


and he
says, "I...
I am a man,
a simple man,
...a man of colours,
and I can see

see through the years,
years of a man,
...a man of colours"



and the old man rubs his failing eyes
and takes a moment to watch the view

from a window nobody knows is there
he can see the empty street below


[chorus]

he says, "I keep my life in this paintbox
I keep your face in
these picture frames
and when I speak to this faded canvas it tells me
I have no need
for words anyway..."

[chorus]

and he says, "I...
I am a man,
a
simple man,
...a man of colours,
and I can see
see through the tears,
tears
of a man,
...a man of colours"
