A life shot in black and white,
Lays me down,
Takes to me where,
Words still fail me, yes!
A life shot in black and white,
Shames me now, as it takes us there,
Where nothing can break this.
Toiling back, I am still ashen,
I keep falling back,
On what I believe still matters.
I'm slamming on the brakes,
And like a haunted child, I was born to break.

A life shot in black and white,
Throws me down, then raises me,
With colours still bleeding... yes.
It's all there in black and white,
We've seen it now, seen it there,
And the moment's not leaving.

A life shot in black and white,
Stares me down, take me where,
And like doves we won't leave never.
We're still here in black and white,
