This time I'm carrying all my colours and a roll of cotton
Always going lightly
Easier to connect
I want to meet people
Collect stories of love
The colours got me here
It was Lament Red down on Venice Beach
She told me to go to the love heart
I want to paint people's hearts in the moment
First morning I head to Eagle Rock
I meet Ann at the top
We paint a sky blue heart
She's moving on
The hearts take on their own momentum
Beat, beat, beat
I meet so many hearts
"Jump the wall"
"One millions trees"
"It's always testing"
"From the dirtiest ponds comes the prettiest flowers"
"Love makes you do things differently"
I end up at the immaculate heart of free fall
There I jump the wall
When I look up I see one millions trees
Love hearts have got me to dreams
If the wings were to fly
The magic to trust
Wolves to transform
The rainbow to connect
And the colours to never give up
Then the love heart is to listen
