    Lyrics

    We are like children
    We;re painted on canvases
    Picking up shades as we go
    We start off with gesso
    brushed on by people we know
    Watch your step as you go
    Step back and admire my view
    Can you use the colors I choose?
    Do I have some say what you use?

    Do I have some greens and some blues?
    We're made by the pigment of paint that is put upon
    Our stories are told by our hues
    Like Motley and Bearden
    These masters of peace and life
    Layers of color and time
    Step back and admire my view
    Can I use the colors I choose?
    Don't I have some say what you use?
    Can I get some greens with my blues?
