What Color Is Gone (©2010 Beckley/Hurst) Today my little girl was drawing pictures Coloring in red and blue and green She did her best to try To stay within the lines Her happy face meant everything to me She said, "I'm drawing you and me and mommy I hope she's home tomorrow from her trip" Then her smile became a frown As she turned and searched around Then spoke these words through tender, trembling lips (Chorus): Daddy, what color is gone Oh, daddy, what color is gone When mommy left last week, she told you from now on You could color her gone Daddy, what color is gone I held my breath and tried to keep from cryin' I turned by head and prayed, Lord, give me strength Then she ran to me And hugged me 'round the knees And said those words that broke my heart again (Chorus): Daddy, what color is gone Oh, daddy, what color is gone When mommy left last week, she told you from now on You could color her gone Daddy, what color is gone (Bridge): She checked her crayons one more time Then her teary eyes looked up at mine I braced myself for what I knew she'd say (Chorus): Daddy, what color is gone Oh, daddy, what color is gone When mommy left last week, she told you from now on You could color her gone Daddy, what color is gone Oh, Daddy, what color is gone
