Black and White World
I was looking at the black and white world It seemed so exciting If you`d only put me back to back with that girl When the night`s inviting With just a little lighting There`ll never be days like that again When I was just a boy and men were men You never go from moment to moment You`re the living double of a single fiction You`re very colorful with your compliments As you feel the finger`s friction It`s a freeze-frame Still it`s real life You don`t want to look Cause you've seen the film and you`ve read the book I was looking at the black and white world Trying to name some pin-up Those days she was just a beautiful girl Now she`s framed and hung up I thought she was young Up until I saw her last night in close detail Though they all fade away when you`re so pale It`s more than just a physical attraction It starts with a face and ends up a fixation But you`re never gonna feel a fraction Of the way it used to work on your imagination When you were looking at the black and white world...
