lyrics

To Black and White:

Flip the switch, I’ve turned to ash;
I’m not a hero in the sense -
You’d shower flowers on a man;
For the way he passed the hours, and -
I only fought for what I knew;
If love is blind, I’d still find you;
I’m just a step out of the light;
Only time will tell you why;

I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned my back on life -
Like the beggars on the streets;
I found the ground beneath my feet;
While you wrapped yourself in gold;
I lied here thinkin’ how I’d grow old;
Sing your song and find yourself;
Don’t carry my cross back t’ hell;
I need your prayers more than your time;
If god should answer, tell him why -

I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned my back on life;

If you call me, I’ll come home;
If your lonely sing this song;
On the edges of the night -
I’ll be holding the line;
I’ll be holding the line;
I’ll be holding the line;
But my life’s still black and white -

Now I’m standing toe to toe;
With the mirror and my ghost;
My heart has stopped, I’ll find a way;
Back to Earth or back t’ grace;
My shadow casts at night and I –
Found my yesterday’s alive;
At the crossroads I went RIGHT;
And LEFT the ones I loved behind;

I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned to black and white;
I’ve turned my back on life -
