The Sounds, Painted By Numbers

Song Challenge Day 08 – a song that you know all the words to: Tough one…  But Painted by Numbers is the choice. One of the great songs by The Sounds from Sweden. I have listened a lot to this band and still do. The latest album is great, Something to Die For, in style it differs from the others but it is still fantastic. Anyway, here is the video to Painted by Numbers, the song is taken from the album Dying to Say this to You.

The lyrics, in case you don’t know all the words to the song, are as follows. Painted by Numbers:

Could I act like you, and put a smile on my face
Not even for a second, would I lie to myself
Too many things are missing, and there’s a tear in my eye
It’s not a question or an answer, but it will change your mind

We’ll be the same tomorrow
‘Cause we all been painted by numbers
We’re dancin’ as we borrow
You said it was love
I said I’d like you to be mine

na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

I couldn’t act like you, but I can love like you do
Between us there is something, I can’t explain it to you

We’ll be the same tomorrow
‘Cause we all been painted by numbers
We’re dancin’ as we borrow
You said it was love
I got what I need to get by

We’ll be the same tomorrow
‘Cause we all been painted by numbers
We’re dancin’ as we borrow
You said it was love
I said I’d like you to be mine

na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na

We’ll be the same tomorrow
‘Cause we all been painted by numbers
We’re dancin’ as we borrow

Sing a song for sorrow (Sing a song for sorrow)
‘Cause we all been painted by numbers
We’re dancin’ as we borrow
You said it was love
I got what I need to get by
