Painted On Canvas lyrics

We are like children
We're painted on canvases
Picking up shades as we go

We start off with gesso
brushed on by people we know

Watch your technique as you go
Step back and admire my view
Can you use the colors I choose?
Do I have some say what you use?
Can I get some greens and some blues?
We're made by the pigment of paint that is put upon
Our stories are told by our hues
Like Motley or Bearden
These masters of peace and life
Layers of colors and time
Step back and admire my view
Can I use the colors I choose?
Don't I have some say what you use?
Can't get some greens with my blues?
