Liner Notes: 

Color (or colour on this side of the pond) is a lover's lament. Chorus turned out a bit verse-like but it does sum up the story so I guess it's ok.
Any musicians want a go at it, just let me know.

Lyrics: 

Color

Verse 1
You were my artists palette
Every color on the planet
My private color chart
A work of abstract art

Chorus:
My world was filled with color
Before you went away
Now everything is duller
All I see are shades of grey

Verse 2
You were my flower garden
My blue, my green, my carmen
Like a double rainbow
A sunset’s afterglow

Chorus:
My world was filled with color
Before you went away
Now everything is duller
All I see are shades of grey

Outro:
Yes, everything I see now
Is just a shade of grey
My world was filled with color
Now all I see is grey

I like the differentiation between the rhyme schemes of the verse and chorus - a nice writer's touch that the singer could appreciate.
This one is ready for music, for sure!
