"Life Is White" as written by Alex Chilton and Andy Hummel....
Don't like to see your face
Don't like to hear you talk at all
I could be with Ann
But I'd just get bored

Can't even bring myself to call
And I don't want to see you now
'Cause I know what you lack
And I can't go back to that

Whatever's all the same
Now there's nobody to know
And I can't recall, recall your name
All I can say is so

And I don't want to see you now
'Cause I know what you lack
And I can't go back to that

Your life is white
And I don't think I like
You hanging around

Don't like to see your face
Don't like to hear you talk at all
I could be with Ann
But I'd just get bored

Can't even bring myself to call
And I don't want to see you now
'Cause I know what you lack
And I can't go back to that, now

    General CommentI love the flow and message of the song. Don't know exactly who he's refering to, I like to pretend that not all lyrics are about girls.

    General CommentI wonder if the title has anything to do with "My Life is Right" from #1 Record.

    General CommentCan't state what Alex's lyrics are actually about, but I believe this song is blatantly about a girl he had loved who doesn't quite meet his expectations. She's kind of bland, and Alex doesn't find that love for her anymore.

    Another beautifully constructed song by Chilton. Love the harmonica in the background.
