She walks away
The colors fade to gray
Every precious moment now a waste

She hits the gas
Hoping it would pass
But the red light starts to flash
It's time to wait

And the black keys never looked so beautiful
And a perfect rainbow never seemed so dull
And the lights out
Never had this bright a glow
And the black keys showing me a world I never knew, no
A world I never knew

She hates the sun
Cause it proves she's not alone
And the world doesn't revolve around her soul
She loves the sky cause it validates her pride
Never lets her know when she is wrong

And the black keys never looked so beautiful
And a perfect rainbow never seemed so dull
And the lights out
Never had this bright a glow
And the black keys showing me a world I never know

Yeah
The walls are closing in
Don't let em get
Inside of your head
Don't let em get
Inside of your head
Don't let em get
Inside of your head
Don't let them inside

Cause the black keys never looked so beautiful
And a perfect rainbow never seemed so dull
Oh-oh
And the lights out never had this bright a glow
And the black keys showing me a world I never know

Don't let em get
Don't let em get
Inside of your head
No
Don't let em get yeah
Inside of your head
Don't let em get
Don't let em get
Inside of your head
Don't let em get
Oh-oh
Inside of your head

Sometimes a fight is better black and white

    He wanted to use the black keys on a piano. black keys are mainly ingnored but when you play then you can actually get something beautiful from it. like this song.

    I love this song so much. Nick wrote it so that's why is so beautiful and with a great meaning. He said that sometimes is better to let everything on black&white instead that messing everything up with colors. For me that's like a metaphor of how sometimes we make mistakes but is better to kinda forget about them than being stuck in the past...i think.

    i loveee this song...it has a wonderful meaning. black and white is just simple and sometimes if u add color u can screw things up. this is also Nick's first song using only the black keys of a piano
