Pretty Words (from Let It Shine)

Pretty words they color my face tonight, while the world is sullen and blue, pretty words from a lover who holds me tight, when I can't get my mind off of you.

Oh, the days get cloudy, but my heart is pure, it's this life that's bringin' me down.  Dreams of you still haunt me like a deep winter's chill, turn my sweet smile straight into a frown.

Pretty words, pretty words won't you tell me your lies, when I'm sad, and I just want to cry?  'Cause the dreams that once gave me my wings to escape just came crashing down straight from the sky.

So, it's over for sunny weather, rain is always a better goodbye, we'll remember the tears together, when that old winter chills starts to sigh.

Pretty words will color my face tonight, while the world slowly fades from my view, pretty words from a lover asleep in the night, when I get can't my mind off of you.
