Go ahead
Go ahead
and smash it on the floor
Take whatever's left
and take it with you out the door

See if I cry
See if I shed a single sorry tear
I can't say
that it's been that great
No
In fact it's been a wasted year

Everybody sees and everyone agrees
that you and I are wrong
And it's been that way too long
Take it as it comes
and be thankful when it's done
There's so many ways to act
and there's many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
Yeah
Yeah

Let it out
Lett it all out
Say what's on your mind
You can kick and scream
And shout and say things
that are so unkind

Yeah
See if I care
And see if I stand firm
or if I fall
'Cause in the back of my mind
And on the tip of my tongue
is the answer to it all

Everybody sees and everyone agrees
that you and I are wrong
And it's been that way too long
Take it as it comes
and be thankful when it's done
There's so many ways to act
and there's many shades of black
There's many shades of black
Yeah
There's many shades of black

Oh
Oh

Yeah
Everybody sees and everyone agrees
that you and I are wrong
And it's been that way too long
Baby take it as it comes
and be thankful when it's done
There's so many ways to act
and you cannot take it back
(Many shades of black)
No
You cannot take it back

'Cause there's many shades of black
(Many shades of black)
You have many shades of black
You have many
(Many shades of black)
You have many
You have many shades of black

'Cause there's many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
(Many shades of black)
There's so many shades of black
There's so many shades of black

Yeah
Oh
Oh
Oh
