"The song 'Colours' is a gentle reflection of love and bliss in the everyday. It speaks of both giving and receiving love. It brings to mind the 1960's era of free love, and with a female singer it has a new voice.  And now we're in a new era of consciousness, expansion, and awakening to the importance of looking out for each other and self-love!" - Erika Spring

Lyrics


"Colours" by Donovan

Yellow is the colour of my true love's hair

In the mornin' when we rise

In the mornin' when we rise

That's the time, that's the time

I love the best

 

Blue's the colour of the sky

In the mornin' when we rise

In the mornin' when we rise

That's the time, that's the time

I love the best

 

Green's the colour of the sparklin' corn

In the mornin' when we rise

In the mornin' when we rise

That's the time, that's the time

I love the best

 

Mellow is the feeling that I get

When I see her, mm hmm

When I see her, mm hmm

That's the time, that's the time

I love the best

 

Freedom is a word I rarely use

Without thinkin', mm hmm

Without thinkin', mm hmm

Of the time, of the time

When I've been loved
