Black Andamp; White People - Lyrics by Matchbox 20


Lyrics
One more day down
\r
Everybody has those days
\r
Where one soft sweet song's
\r
Just enough to clear my head
\r

\r
Fall on real life
\r
Is anybody left there sane?
\r
If we slide on over and accept fate
\r
Then it's bound to be a powerful thing
\r

\r
If it's just that you're weak
\r
Can we talk about it
\r
It's gettin' so damn creepy
\r
Just nursing this ghost of chance
\r
The fiction, the romance
\r
And the Technicolor dreams
\r
Of black and white people
\r

\r
One boy head strong
\r
Thinks that living here's just plain
\r
He's pushed down so hard
\r
You can hear him start to sink
\r

\r
And it's one last round of petty conversation
\r
You hold on boy 'cuz
\r
You won't go down like this?
\r
Just roll over
\r
Lay down till it's more than you can take
\r

\r
If it's just that you're weak
\r
Can we talk about it
\r
It's gettin' so damn creepy
\r
Just nursing this ghost of chance
\r
The fiction, the romance
\r
And the Technicolor dreams
\r
Of black and white people
\r

\r
So one more day down
\r
And everybody's changin'
\r
One soft sweet sound
\r
Is just enough to clear my head
\r

\r
If it's just that you're weak
\r
Can we talk about it
\r
It's gettin' so damn creepy
\r
Just nursing this ghost of chance
\r
The fiction, the romance
\r
And the Technicolor dreams
\r
Of black and white people
\r

\r
Yeah if you're weak
\r
Can we talk about it
\r
It's gettin' so damn creepy
\r
Just nursing this ghost of chance
\r
The fiction, the romance
\r
And the Technicolor dreams
\r
Of black and white people
\r

\r
We are black and white people
\r
We are black and white people
\r
We are black and white people
\r
\r
