The Alternate Routes – The Black And The White lyrics

Well, it's five of nine and I'm over you
I'm gonna do whatever this empty bottle tells me to
And I'm so excited that I feel no pain
Finally everything's right in place with my heart again
And there no ends I can't see
There's nothing but the summer in me

Sing, hey la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white

Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder

And it's a holiday weekend, only twelve twenty-five
I walk down to this neighborhood place and I'm feeling alive
And it's trapped in the alley and the lighting is fair
And the bartender's laughing with strangers
I reach from the wall and I pull up a chair
Singing "luck be a lady, this is where I belong"
And I know that you're somewhere singing along

Sing, hey la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white

Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder

And there once was a dozen now there's only a few
And it's just past one thirty and I'm over you
And there in across town shadows I steal away
I let a gin shot of whiskey take a good man back to his yesterdays
And it starts me on thinking that you should have stayed
And I think about sleeping tonight in the bed that you made

Sing, hey la de day
I come out tonight
I look to get lost in the black and the white

Put the colors in me
Remembering when
I start looking over my shoulder again
Over your shoulder
