(with Phyllis Hyman & Tom Scott)

BARRY:

There are no stars tonight,

There are no words to say
I feel my soul losing you
PHYLLIS:
Where did the good times go,

Baby what can we do Color our love
BOTH:
Black and blue, Black and blue
PHYLLIS:
When our hearts were young,

Clinging to each other Moonlight used to glow
BOTH:
When our hearts were young,

Then there was no other
BARRY:
Why'd we let it go
Down on the avenue, You can forget your name

BOTH:
Paint pretty pictures, False and true
BARRY:
Picture what we've become
PHYLLIS:
Running is all we do Color our love
BOTH:
Black and blue, Black and blue

Looks like a storm tonight
A storm is overdue
Color our love
Black and blue, Black and blue, Oh
