Am

The walls are whispering

Em

With the memories,

        F

she doesn’t care to share

   C

she doesn’t dare to dream

Because she knows they lead

Am

Nowhere

          Am

As the hours go by

Em

She doesn't even try

G

To pick up all the broken pieces

Of her life


Chorus

C

And as the colors fade away

Dm        C

And her life begins to change

The rainbows

  F

She once knew

Am

Are now black and grey

 G

There's nothing new

 Am

She’s gone colorblind

G

She’s now colorblind

C

She’s Colorblind


Verse 2

Am

As she hides away

Em       

From the fears inside

      F

She tries not to give in

             Am

But she’s too tired to try

C

To hide the tears again

From

C     F

the darkness within

Am

The battles she has won

Em

Don’t compare to the mask she tries to wear

But she sees that

Chorus

C

as the colors fade away

Dm        C

And her life begins to change

The rainbows

  F

She once knew

Am

Are now black and grey

 G

There's nothing new

 Am

She’s gone colorblind

G

She’s now colorblind

C

She’s Colorblind

Bridge

F                             C

As vibrant colors begin to return

F                            C

shes still worried she’ll get burned

G

But she can’t think about that now

Em

She’ll make it through somehow


Because

Am

Those colors won’t define her

F

They might be black and grey

Am             F C

but everyone has the chance to change

C

And she will find her way

F

The black and grey have  gone away

G

She sees bright colors once again

C

Colors bright today
