We're so excited to finally be able to share with you all our video for Color Green! This is one of the most personal videos we've ever released. It starts off showing Greg (one of Louis' closest childhood friends) with his daughter and shows his daily routine through his eyes. Greg is one of many people out in the world who are color blind, and the way he sees people's skin, traffic lights, etc. looks different and we wanted to shed some light on that.
We also want to give a huge shout out to Enchroma (http://enchroma.com/
). They have an amazing pair of glasses that allow the color blind to see the world with enhanced color and because of them we were able to present Greg, along with a few other color blind people, with these glasses. The first time Greg, along with everyone else we presented the glasses to, tried on these glasses were caught in the video and seeing their reactions to how the world looks in full color was something that we can't even put into words.

A three-letter word
You didn't need a reason
You played your cards
He took what he needed
And now you're running wild with the horses
On open fields, you're feeling free
Rose petals on an empty bed
You're holding on to a teenage dream
Dancing in a wedding dress but it is only in your mind
Color green, the grass is red from all the cherry trees
Velveteen, so sweet and soft she’s falling with the leaves
The painful truth you'll have to let him go
Tears don’t last long no I'm here to let you know
I still love you with all of my feelings
So much I can’t count the ways now
I'd die for you a million times
And I hope that echoes through the end of time
The idea scares me knowing one day you'll grow up
Will I embrace the change like seasons come and go?
I want to be there when you take your first steps and watch you climb to the top
of a mountain
Treasure life in a million ways let your dreams and your heart light the way
