I have list after list of lyrics, stuffed into notebooks and scribbled on scraps of paper. There are lists of lyrics that I like, lyrics to learn, lyrics I’ve written, lyrics to steal, and they’re all as different as the day is long. Most, though, have love as the common theme (I must be soppier than I thought). The lyrics here take us through all shades of love, from the blissful to the bleak, to the downright dirty. It’s organised by colours chosen not by science or study but by what feels right. For me, that fits perfectly.
