watercolors
we live in a world of black and white
and all we need is some color
to help us see things right
 we just need a little color
to shed  a little light
on out world of black and white

so we ran all around
painting up the town
in shades of yellow orange green and red
and we didn't even mind
that there was anger in their eyes
as they just watched and shook their heads
they couldn't see
that our world of black and white was never meant to be

so we painted up the town
but they went and burned it down
with lighters matches and their hateful words
they said it would get better
and we took our last stand together
with a smile we ran right past
the smell of smoke and the color of ash
they had to see that our world of black and white was never meant to be

we held the ruins in our hands
of dreams and love and forgotten plans
we held the ashes in our hands
that was when we took our last stand
we ran all around
painting up the town
in shades of yellow orange green and red
and we didn't even mind
that there was anger in their eyes
they thought we'd lost our heads

one day they'd see
that our world of black and white
was never meant to be

The last three lines are a great hook, I think they should be repeated through the song, my suggestion... great song jazzkat!

Awesome song! I would love to see/hear the music for this. Is it possible to upload a manuscript of the melody and chords? :D
