Halsey - Colors

Your little brother never tells you but he loves you so
You said your mother only smiled on her TV show
You're only happy when your sorry head is filled with dope
I hope you make it to the day you're 28 years old

You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
You're spilling like an overflowing sink
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
And now you're tearing through the pages and the ink

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I'm covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue

You were a vision in the morning when the light came through
I know I've only felt religion when I've lied with you
You said you'll never be forgiven 'til your boys are too
And I'm still waking every morning but it's not with you

You're dripping like a saturated sunrise
You're spilling like an overflowing sink
You're ripped at every edge but you're a masterpiece
And now you're tearing through the pages and the ink

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I'm covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue

Everything is blue
Everything is blue
Everything is blue
Everything is blue

You were red and you liked me because I was blue
You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky
And you decided purple just wasn't for you

Everything is blue
His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I'm covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams
It makes me blue
It makes me blue

Everything is grey
His hair, his smoke, his dreams
And now he's so devoid of color
He don't know what it means
And he's blue
And he's blue

Everything is blue [4x]

“Colors” was uniquely announced as the second single from Halsey’s debut Badlands on January 21st, 2016 through a mural in Brooklyn, NY. The official music video features MTV’s Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey. The context behind family and addictions provides evidence that “Colors” is about The 1975’s frontman Matty Healy. In October of 2015, Halsey mentioned during one of her shows that her and Matty met at that particular venue. She has also mentioned him as an inspiring influence. Billboard brought him up in an interview, questioning the nature of their relationship, to which she responded: "We’re both attracted to characters, and we saw that in each other. I spent a lot of time watching him and he spent a lot of time loving being watched. But if you think he’s the first red-wine-drinking, pretty-boy rocker in skinny jeans I’ve … been associated with, you’re out of your fucking mind." Halsey posted images of Healy on her Instagram, as well as a personal post on her (now deleted) personal Tumblr in July of 2014 about her sentiments towards their relationship. Despite the depth of information provided, the two are not explicitly confirmed to have been a legitimate couple. Halsey’s latest relationship was with Norwegian hip-hop artist and producer Lido, who worked extensively on many tracks from her album.
