as heads is tails 1966, Jagger/Richards

I see a red door
And I want it painted black
No colors anymore
I want them to turn black

I see the girls walk by
Dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head
Until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars
And they're all painted black
With flowers and my love
Both never to come back

I see them turn their heads
Quickly look away
Like a newborn baby
It just happens every day

I look inside my self
See my heart is back
I see my red door
And I want it painted black

Maybe then I'll fade away
And not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up
When your whole world is black

No more will my green sea
Go turn a deeper blue
I could not
Foresee this thing
happening to you.

If I look hard enough
Into the setting sun,
My love will laugh with me
Before the morning comes

(i wanna see you paint it,
paint it black,
black as night
black as coal
i wanna see the sun
blotted out from the sky

i wanna see you
paint it paint it paint it
paint it black
