Well there's a cruel sun beating
Where there once was a river
Crops are bending in the heat
But still her dark skin shivers
When you move to the beat of hungry
It's a slow, aching journey
She'd hide out but there ain't no shelter
She'd cry but there ain't no pity
Yet the cool of the night
Reveals the spark of a sweeter life
So she's dreamin'in color and livin'in black and white

Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Sittin'in a grey day, leanin' on a bright new tomorrow
Where some rainbow rules will make everything all right

She ain't about to let the blues over come her
She'll contend with this day to day life
She's just dreamin' in color, and livin' in black and white

Well it's a gunshot down
Here in the heart of the city
He slides closer to his mama
It's months since they've seen daddy
There's a pale light shinin'
From a bare refrigerator
By the stained, cracked plaster
By the cold radiator
But he's sure out beyond these mean streets
There lies paradise
So he's dreamin' in color and livin' in black and white

Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Sittin'in a grey day, leanin' on a bright new tomorrow
Where some rainbow rules will make everything all right

He ain't about to let the blues over come him
He'll contend with this day to day life
He's just dreamin' in color, and livin' in black and white

Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Sittin'in a grey day, leanin' on a bright new tomorrow
Where some rainbow rules will make everything all right

They ain't about to let the blues over come them
They'll contend with this day to day life
They're just dreamin' in color, and livin' in black and white
They're just dreamin' in color, and livin' in black and white

Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
Dreamin' in color, livin' in stone cold black and white
