12. City Of Black & White

City Of Black & White
by Mat Kearney


this whole cityís black and white
tell me what is your color
ícause itíd be the same as mine
faded greens and blue street lights
thereís a red fire burning from the sea up to the sky

ícause i donít want to wait until tomorrow
tell you how iíll feel the rest of my life
you donít want to waste another minute
when you realize
walking on the dark side of the evening
maybe it was you that opened my eyes
burning like a fire on the water
in the city of black and white
wonít you just stay
iím on the top stair looking down
if youíre climbing up to me
itís where the whole world wants to be found
golden rings and coffee brown
thereís a white flag waving
where my heart is on the ground

wonít you just stay now
where the light goes
under a dark street
no one else knows
take my hand, iíll carry you
you can carry me

wonít you just stay
wonít you just stay now stay now
stay now when light goes
wonít you just stay
wonít you just stay
