Franks, Michael - Crayon Sun (Safe At Home) Lyrics




Makes no difference where you go
Every journey ends
Each new landscape now you know
Is a stepping-stone
Till you're safe at home

Purple clouds, grey winds that rage
Lightning lines pale white
Choose new colors, turn the page
Where there is no storm
And you're safe at home

Crayon sun above you
In a blue crayon sky
Little one, I love you
You're the reason that
I am here

Once inside just close the door
Leave the world behind
Love is what we're living for
Love and love alone
To be safe at home

You asleep in my arms under crayon
Sunlight-yellow
By the opal pool
All the long afternoons in the crayon
Sunlight-yellow
By the opal pool
And both of us safe at home
And everyone safe at home

    Lyrics
    Makes no difference where you go
    Every journey ends.
    Each new landscape now you know.
    Is a stepping-stone
    Till you're safe at home.
    Purple clouds, grey winds that rage,
    Lightning lines pale white-
    Choose new colors, turn the page
    Where there is no storm
    And you're safe at home.
    Crayon sun above you
    In a blue crayon sky
    Little one, I love you
    You're the reason that
    I am here.
    Once inside just close the door
    Leave the world behind.
    Love is what we're living for
    Love and love alone
    To be safe at home.
    You asleep in my arms under crayon
    Sunlight-yellow
    By the opal pool.
    All the long afternoons in the crayon
    Sunlight-yellow
    By the opal pool.
    And both of us safe at home.
    And everyone safe at home.
