You see the world in black and white
No colour or light
You think you'll never get it right
But you're wrong you might

The sky could fall could fall on me
The parting of the seas
But you mean more mean more to me
Than any colour I can see

All you ever wanted was love
But you never looked hard enough
It's never gonna give itself up

All you ever wanted to be
Living in perfect symmetry
Nothing is as down or as up, as us

You see the world in black and white
Not painted bright
You see no meaning to your life
You should try
You should try

And all you ever wanted was love
But you never looked hard enough
It's never gonna give itself up

All you ever wanted to be
Living in perfect symmetry
Nothing is as down on this Earth

Don't you want to see it come soon
Floating in a big white balloon
Or given on your own silverspoon

Don't you want to see it come down
Careful throwing your arms around
And saying you're a moment too soon

Cause I feel low
Cause I feel low
Oh, yeah I feel low
Oh yeah
Oh

Oh
Cause I feel low
Cause I feel low
Oh
And I feel low
Oh love
Oh

    the song means that you shouldn't expect to have life handed to you on a silver platter, especially love, you have to go out and get it for yourself.

    Its about a guy who feels unwanted and his life is boring,dull,no color. he is looking for a break that may never happen
    he feels his life is a joke and it never had any meaning. But thats not true,but he can see that. he never had true love. he is not rich.
    but all he ever wanted was to be loved. To feel wanted. To feel like he is not some random fringe. Like he is something in life.
    but the thing is he never tried hard enough. he never looked hard enough. So one day he is feeling so Low he thought he could just end it. Just die. But he looked up and saw. he looked so hard and he saw what he needed. Color and he felt Love. And the Girl who was just right saved him. From Himself.
