There ain't no colors in the sky
And I don't feel much like singing
Can't see what for

And there ain't no comfort in this life
All that I can see that's ahead of me seems like
Such a chore

Maybe something will happen to make it all better
Maybe something will come along and make me happy

There ain't no fun in living anymore
And I don't feel much like living
Can't see what for
There ain't no life left in me

I feel a bit funny
Like a ghost
With nowhere to go
My hope has gone and left me

A desperate man
There's no spunk left in me
I feel so hollow in me
So empty, so empty
So empty, so empty

A big chunk of what I was has gone
And left me a desperate man
Now I'm a desperate man
I'm lonely, scared

Sad, sorry man
And I just can't see no colors in the sky
There's color there I'm sure, but it ain't mine

And it's made me blind
A desperate man
I'm a desperate man
