Love is a Wonderful Colour – The Icicle Works #SLS #SongLyricSunday

Ok so you’re going to have to listen/ read the lyrics right to the end of this song to find Helen’s prompt word for this week – ‘take’. But I’ve been listening to this band from my hometown a lot in the last couple of weeks and frankly, I was looking for a way to shoehorn them into Song Lyric Sunday. Enjoy!

My friend and I
Were talking one evening
Beside some burning wood
Trading tales
Of places we came upon
When the times were good
Spoke of a girl
He viewed like no other
Whom he had come to know
I swallowed hard
And listened intently
Resigned beside the glow

Always there
It’s standing proudly
When all else falls down
It’s all around you
Didn’t it find you
When you said you couldn’t be found

When love calls me, I will be running swiftly
To find out just what all the fuss is all about
Unrelentless, deep in the strangest feelings
Believe me, love is full of wonderful colour

I can still hear
Your soft voice repeating
In more than words
Mountains moved
Belief is your weapon
It all seemed so absurd
I insist
That you pick the wrong one
To preach your theories to
Simmer down
We’ll run for a reason
To see what faith can do

On the horizon
Watch when you touch down
Reality finds you
Fumbling for reasons
When the chance comes ’round

When love calls me, I will be running swiftly
To find out just what all the fuss is all about
Unrelentless, deep in the strangest feelings
Believe me, love is full of wonderful colour

When love calls me, I will be running swiftly
To find out just what all the fuss is all about
Unrelentless, deep in the strangest feelings
Believe me, love is full of wonderful colour

Take my confidence to guide you
Through the fallen hope inside you
Love is full of wonderful colour

Take my confidence to guide you
Through the fallen hope inside you
Love is full of wonderful colour

When love calls me, I will be running swiftly
To find out just what all the fuss is all about
Unrelentless, deep in the strangest feelings
Believe me, love is full of wonderful colour

When love calls me, I will be running swiftly
To find out just what all the fuss is all about
Unrelentless, deep in the strangest feelings
Believe me, love is full of wonderful colour

Take my confidence to guide you
Through the fallen hope inside you
Love is full of wonderful colour

Take my confidence to guide you
Through the fallen hope inside you
Love is full of wonderful colour
