Love Takes A Whole Box Of Crayons      


I'm only four years old he said
As he climbed up on the chair
And handed me the picture he had drawn
I knew just how to color Mamma's eyes and Daddy's hair
But Mister, I still think there's something wrong
There's one color missing and I just don't know
If it's gold or green or blue or red
He said which one of my crayons is the color of true love
Well, I just looked at him and then I said...

Love is red cause it lives within the heart
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky
Love is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean
Love is white like a dove for it can fly
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine
Love is the heart's rainbow

I said I've seen little baby's born
And I've seen old friends pass away
Love has made me laugh and made me cry
There ain't just one kind of love it changes everyday
And if I had to guess I'd say that's why...

Love is red cause it lives within the heart
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky
Love is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean
Love is white like a dove for it can fly
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine
Love is the heart's rainbow

He said "Thank you, Mister. Thank you!"
He said, "Now I think I know
what it is that I have got to do."
He said "I'll go get my crayons
And I'll make a big rainbow
And I'll put in one color just for you... He said

Love is red cause it lives within the heart
Love is blue cause it's wider than the sky
Love is green cause it's deeper than the forest or the ocean
Love is white like a dove for it can fly
Love is gold cause it warms us like the sun
Love is brown like the earth, it helps us grow
Love takes a whole box of crayons to imagine
Love is the heart's rainbow
