Black and White

Original lyrics for Black and White written by Marcus Alexander

There’s a shadow following you around
It’s the shadow of him letting you down
It’s the shadow of what he has done
It’s the shadow of what you’ll become

But your darkness is just absence of light
And your wounds are just proof that you fight
And now a new fire is burning and bright
Let it burn at the wrong in the right

At least you’ll be black and white

I too, have asked myself why
And I too, have told myself “try”
And I too, have failed not to cry
And I too, found my light to get by

So believe me when I say that you would
Hold my hand, not just to see if you could
And hold on to it late through the night
Until you’re no longer feeling alright

At least we’ll be black and white
