Ocean, Billy - The Colour Of Love Lyrics

If I had to paint a picture
To show the world how true love can really be
I would use the brightest colours
To create a vision of harmony

It would be a reality
Cause it's only what's inside of my heart
You would see I've always loved you
Right from the very start

Tell me what is the colour of love, what do you see
Is it warm, is it tender when you think of me
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of a love forever true

The colours of the rainbow
Turn grey whenever you're so far away
It changes like the seasons
You're the reason it happens that way

What you see are colours of emotion
Reflecting what I feel deep inside
Now I'd like to take a look
At emotions that you hide

Tell me what is the colour of love, what do you see
Is it warm, is it tender when you think of me
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of a love forever true

And oh, though many may try to keep us apart
Oh the colours that I see in you
Will shine a light to see us through
No matter what the world will do, I'll always love you

Tell me what is the colour of love, what do you see
Is it warm, is it tender when you think of me
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect painting of a love forever true

What is the colour of love, oh tell me, tell me
Oh I wanna know, I wanna know
I see the colour of love when I'm thinking of you
As a picture perfect paining of a love forever true

    Really don’t make songs like this no more just stuck in this era

  12. Eric S. Pizarro

    The Caribbean islands are magic. I am from Puerto Rico and heard this along with all the songs from the Tear Down These Walls album as a kid. Like many I thought all English songs were from the US not knowing that the majority of the hits from the 80’s are from the UK, along with many of its former colonies.

  13. Mimie Mopeli

    The colour of love...oh my...what a classic

  14. John Kelly

    Always, always, when I need to connect, to a masterpiece of real music😁

  15. shihlin1

    Easily the best song from Billy's last album for BMG RCA in 1988. A sweeping song of emotions, it really shoulda been a huge hit that year, but according to Billboard, the song peaked at # 17. It's one of those classic songs that's timeless. Even listening to this song now, you cannot tell which year it was released.

    Billy gained fame from "Caribbean Queen" in 1984, a huge reggae hit that was his first #1 smash on the pop charts, but he was an excellent balladeer as evident on "Color of Love". His voice has a beautiful, warm, rounded tone. It's impossible to find a song like this today. It remains my fav Billy Ocean song.

    Somebody tell me what's up with women. Finding love is such a hard won victory. Something's going on because women used to be nice to me, not these days. So any guy out there having trouble getting that honey it's not you, it's them. I don't know if it's something in the air or what.

  91. Xolani Nari

    Billy Ocean I like his voice king of soul music

  92. Danny Dunham

    I love Billy Ocean and I love this song. I have an ear for anything romantic. The first song I heard by him was Lover Boy. Color of Love is my favorite.
