Somewhere there's a color that I won't forget
I can't recall it now but it's stuck nonetheless
Cheap telephone tones, echo blue and red

Footsteps grey against the the dormitory walls
Starlight songs write out the contents of the calls
Wires crossed, blindly slipping down the stairs
If nobody knows I don't suppose they could care

I can't get enough air
Engine noise is motor oil brown
Yellow lines behind
I don't dare slow down
Welling up in my rear view mirror
Countless miles of ocean blue tears

Your laughter was lightning the struck me deaf
Now I've got a lot more road but you've run out of breath
Cell phone's sickly light tastes like a shot of fear

I know it's okay to be late
But I wasn't there at all
I know it's wrong to drink so deep
When I don't know, don't know what'll catch me when I fall
Take a tiny pill to quiet down the fight
Now there's no sound in the colors
But I only dream, dream in black and white
