I painted a picture of me and of you
And primed with a love so strong it filled the words I do
Each stroke fills an outline, green red shades of blue
And suddenly this dark cloud it comes, comes over you

Well I close my eyes to get it back
Only colors gone
It's washed out, it's stolen by them
Oh, we used to be alright
We used to be okay
We used to be alright, well okay.

Who is this now?
This girl, she's a stranger
I look into her eyes and she stares, she stares back at me.
She follows my moves
Reads words, wrong directions
One day it hits me, this is my own reflection.

Well I close my eyes to get it back
Only colors gone
It's washed out, it's stolen by them
Oh, we used to be alright
We used to be okay
We used to be alright.

Tonight we don't have to fight
Tonight, tonight
Tonight we don't have to fight
Tonight, tonight.

Well I close my eyes to get it back
Only colors gone
It's washed out, it's stolen by them
Oh, we used to be alright
We used to be okay
We used to be alright, well okay.

Well I close my eyes to get it back
Only colors gone
It's washed out, it's stolen by them
Oh, we used to be alright
We used to be okay
We used to be alright, well okay.
