The Staves - Black & White

See myself in black and white
It isn't done, it isn't right
See it there before my eyes
It's a sorry song, a sorry sight

Sunk your teeth, you're in me deep
I couldn't sing, I couldn't sleep
Beat your chest with both your hands
For all I was, for all I am, all I am

Then all my thoughts solidified
To sudden diamonds in my mind
I lit the fuse so run and hide
So honey sweet and sugar kind, sugar kind

Black and white, it isn't right
To hold me down or bleed me dry
Cut the ties that keep me up at night
And make me see myself in black and white

Well I can bite my lips I can chew my hair
But I'm still stone heavy and unprepared
Like an empty chair, I was always there

I can bite my lips I can chew my hair
But I'm still stone heavy and unprepared
Like an empty chair, I was always there

Black and white, it isn't right
To hold me down or bleed me dry
Cut the ties that keep me up at night
And make me see myself in black and white

See myself in black and white
It isn't done, it isn't right.
