Monochrome

lyrics

Soon she’ll fade away
An empty promise
Cast in shades of grey
An image from a dream
Or 50’s TV screen
Going colorblind
I tell myself to
Quit while I’m behind
It’s more than I can bear
To see her standing there
And vanish in thin air

In monochrome
In black and white
She disappears right in front of me
Like color dies in the dark
In camouflage
Against the night
My eyestrain pales in comparison
To the straining of my heart

If only I could shine
A flashlight on her
Pulling her inside
To catch her like a ghost
Entrapped forever close
Right here in my hand
A genie in a bottle to command
Within her radiant shrine
Defying space and time
Her light forever mine.
