We're all just looking for attention, to be discovered overnight. We're all frustrated by the popular ones that claim the limelight before they fall to pieces. So many of us are stuck under the radar--what makes me different? You decide!


Verse 1
As I hold your picture to the light
You don’t seem perfect anymore
As I linger on your static eyes
I realize I don’t love you like before
Instead of being mesmerized
As I look at us I see the holes
That I was blinded to by the dark
Ignorance masking ugly lies

Chorus A
The black and white you
Smiles at me from the nightstand
As I cry myself to sleep
Wondering what went wrong
We’ve both changed, we’ve both grown
And the me I see beside you there
Is black and white
And I’m so sorry baby but
I gotta dream in color tonight

Verse 2
I still see you every day
And each time you walk away my heart bleeds
You’re like a ghost from which I can’t escape
I beg my freedom from your memories
I’m the reason for your guarded eyes
That used to be sparking bright
Forgive me, forgive me, forgive me, I cry
How could something so wrong start so right?


And now
*CHORUS A*

Bridge
Oh
My joy is stolen
Won’t someone make me whole again
Im mourning, begging just to rewind
So you can hold me one more time

Chorus B
Still the black and white you
Smiles at me from the nightstand
I don’t cry but I can’t sleep
I don’t feel anything at all
We’ve both changed, we’ve both grown
And the me I see beside you there
Is black and white
And I’m so sorry baby but
I gotta dream in color tonight
