Black

I will be your chameleon
I’ve been practicing all day
Pretend you don’t know me
For this is the role I’m destined to play

I can be who you want
All your desires will be filled
But my life as I know it
Has suddenly been stilled

The curtain is drawn 
The lights blurring my vision
Who knew this production
Would cause our division 

My life has been shattered
Could you not see the pieces?
I’m down at your feet
As your love, it decreases

Does the love in your eyes
Mimic the lack in your heart
Was this what you wanted
Our lives torn apart?

And I know I’m not able
To take it all back
But tell me, how can I live 
With a soul that is black?
