"Beautiful Colours" is an unreleased song by Duran Duran, written by the five original band members during the Astronaut demo sessions.

About the song Edit

The song was written during demo sessions for the Astronaut album, which began in the south of France in June 2001. The band wrote more than 30 songs during the demo sessions that continued into 2002 and 2003.

The band set out on a world tour in 2003, playing sold-out dates in Japan, America, the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Various shows included five of the new songs which were "Beautiful Colours", "(Reach Up for The) Sunrise", "Still Breathing", "Virus", and "What Happens Tomorrow".

"Beautiful Colours" didn't make it onto the Astronaut album, but the band donated the track to FIFA, the international governing body for football, to use as its Centennial song. At the football awards ceremony for the FIFA 100, honouring the top living footballers, a video of top moments in the sport was accompanied by the song.

Lyrics Edit

Today, riding the slow train along the way

going to who knows where and who knows when

not knowing where you're rolling - it's the learning of this journey



I feel if all of you people gather and believe

being what makes you breathe in is enough

promise to carry on from each moment to the next one



These beautiful colours, infinite patterns so hard I see

And if we're all of the same blood there's not one of you who is the same as me

Clouds of beautiful colours, indifferent to what you believe

Sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til the colours bleed

(keep breathing...)



Design - everyone's their own universe

besides - life is a standard issue to customize

Ashes to understanding is the nature of existence



These beautiful colours, infinite patterns so hard I see

and if we're all of the same blood there's not one of you is the same as me

Proud beautiful colours, indifferent to what you believe

sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til the colours bleed

(keep breathing...)



Keep breathing

Keep loving



These beautiful colours, infinite patterns are what I see

and now if we're all of the same blood there's not one of you is the same as me

Crowds of beautiful colours, indifferent to what you believe

sometimes the beauty of it all seems unbearable 'til the colours bleed
