Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman


[I need you whenever black & white fades to grey when I can’t see any more]

Frozen hands hold me back, from reaching out when I need it
I don’t want to alarm anyone with the ice cold truth
All I am, all I was
Is left floating undecided in the air
Like a train going nowhere
Like a plane fading fast, behind the clouds
The world is losing color, and fading together now

I can’t remember when anything was easy
The black and white became blurred
And right now my focus isn’t steady
I need you to paint the colors back in this world


[instrumental]
It’s all gone grey, It’s all gone grey

There used to be a line between right and wrong
But I can’t find it anymore
I used to have dreams that kept me going
But I gave up hope

Life used to be simple long ago
But now I can’t find my way
Where am I going?
Can you help me?

I need you whenever black & white fades to grey
When I can’t see clearly anymore
I need you to hold me when I’m numb and can’t feel any warmth

You’re the only color left in my world
The only shooting star left in the sky
The only one left holding the brush that can repaint my life

Whenever you’re not near
I lose my way, so save me from this mess
Before it all goes grey, before it all goes grey

There used to be a line between right and wrong
But I can’t find it anymore
I used to have dreams that kept me going but I gave up hope

Life used to be simple long ago
But now I can’t find my way
Where am I going?
Can you help me?

You’re the last color on this earth
The last star in the sky
The last beauty in this world
The sole reason I’m alive

I need you whenever black & white fades to grey when I can’t see any more
