My world's in black and white
It's either day or night
Too loud or barely audible
Too bright or dark as night
Too cool for school or too much of a loser
I don't fit.

I'm blue and green
Orange and yellow
Red and purple
Gold
Black covers me up.
White puts me on a stage in front of the world.

Where's the middle?
Average
Not excellent
Not pitiful
Me.
Don't make me choose.

Let me be the middle
Let me be someone's bright pink
in a world of black and white
Let someone see my colors
Let them shine with me.
