Keith Whitley – Flying Colors lyrics
Flyin' Colors (Keith Whitley)

When you walked out of my life
I didn't think that I'd survive
Hope was growing dimmer day by day

But much to my surprise
Lord I made it out alive
An' my world is looking anything but grey

I came through with flyin' colors
A little black and blue
From the wear and tear
But love got the best of me
An' I turn green with jealousy
When you made it crystal clear you did not care

I came through with flyin' colors
My eyes are red from cryin' the whole night through
I should win the Purple Heart
'Cause you tore mine all apart
But I came through with flyin' colors
After losin' you

Yes I've got a yell'er streak
'Cause I know your places weak
An' I still get pale whenever you're in sight

I may shade out of my mind
Oh but I'm not color blind
'Cause I've learned that love ain't only black and white

I came through with flyin' colors
A little black and blue
From the wear and tear
But love got the best of me
An' I turn green with jealousy
When you made it crystal clear you did not care

I came through with flyin' colors
My eyes are red from cryin' the whole night through
Oh I should win the Purple Heart
'Cause you tore mine all apart
But I came through with flyin' colors
After losin' you

Oh I should win the Purple Heart
'Cause you tore mine all apart
But I came through with flyin' colors
After losin' you
