Modern English

Modern English (sometimes New English as opposed to Middle English and Old English) is the form of the English language spoken since the Great Vowel Shift in England, completed in roughly 1550. more »

Well there it is in black and white
No need to read between the lines
You made it clear to the letter
You're breaking off the chains that bind
I want to tell you but I'm drawing a blank

Ink and Paper - 
Were quite enough to make it clear
Ink and Paper - 
And the words keep ringing in my ears
Ink and Paper -
A broken heart in black and white

So many miles separate us
And they've come between us in the end
Once upon a time you said forever
But this is now and that was then
I want to tell you but I'm drawing a blank

Ink and Paper - 
Can't seem to put it down tonight
Ink and Paper - 
Can't find the words to write
Ink and Paper - 
How can I make them change your mind

I want to tell you but I'm drawing a blank

Ink and Paper - 
Not quite enough to make it clear
Ink and Paper -
And her words keep ringing in my ears
Ink and Paper - 
A broken heart in black and white
