Her life is a show
One act follows the other everywhere she goes
She takes the leading role
She never plays herself
Save for the time shes on the stage

Color her black or white
Now either one reflects the teardrops
One extreme for the other
Nothing in between
Color her white for the princess she could be
Color her black for the troubled child she plays so well
Well shes dancing through hell on a dream

And blue is soul of the one
Reaching for the man that she hasnt got yet
And holding on to those hearts for lost causes
She could be so bright
But shes reaching for us all
Color her blue for the loneliness she feels
Shes hiding her heart in the sky

And this is a thursday afternoon
Its just another thursday afternoon
Its just another thursday afternoon

Color me grey
Im a little bit of everything today
And Im not sure just where Im going
Color me grey
Wishing I was something more of distinction

Color us all cause were just stars
Wishing our lives away
Into the distance
And out of existence

Color her black or white
Color her blue
Or color me grey
Color us all - were stars
Wishing our lives away
Now were stars
