Dream in Color

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
