Written in Green
Bella Hardy

Bye bye cold winter
It's written in green 'cross the town
When I left here seven days ago
My mind and my heart were both sleeping

Bye bye to the loneliness
I felt when I lay in your arms
It was safe but now I'm sorry
You'll see me no more come the morning

In my mind, the winter fades the pink of the magnolia to white
In my mind, it's him not you that's kissing me goodnight

Bye bye to the TV nights
I'll dance on the beach until dawn
And we'll knock back the tequila
And sing back the dark from the day

So bye bye false love forever
Who just liked the sweet parts of me
Well it's time to be young free and easy
It's time to forgive our shortcomings

In my mind, I'm staying out, I'm shouting out, I'm seeing things anew
In my mind, I'm never never coming home to you

Bye bye cold winter
I'll paint it in red 'cross the town
Let each stranger be my friend again
Let this long road of life be our home
