(F. Ebb and J. Kander)For those who fancy coloring booksAs certain people doHere’s a new one for youA most unusual coloring bookThe kind you never seeCrayons ready, very wellBegin to color meThese are the eyes that watched himAs he walked awayColor them grayThis is the heart that thoughtHe would always be trueColor it blueThese are the arms that held himAnd touched him then lost him somehowColor them empty nowThese are the beads I woreUntil she came betweenColor them greenThis is the room I sleep inWalk in and weep inHide in that nobody seesColor it lonely, pleaseThis is the manThe one I depended uponColor him gone.

The singles from the album were “If I Thought You’d Ever Change Your Mind” (#11 in the UK) and “When You Walk in the Room” (UK #34), though many critics nominated “Sometimes When I’m Dreaming” as the stand out track, reminiscent of the quality of ABBA recordings, and issued in Sweden as a promo-only single. The album itself reached #12 in the UK, her highest charting album there until May 2013, when she reached #6 with her album “A”.
