He Colors Mine, Too.


A couple of days ago Kris called for me
to come into his (new and unfinished) office.
He said: "This song is for you," and he had
me listen to "Black and White Days"
by, Gary Go.
(Recording and words below.)

Ty took our photo. Whenever you ask Ty for help,
you get the funny version first. Eventually,
you get what you are really after.



Every word I said I meant it.
All the time I had I spent it.
Was there nothing I could do to prevent it.
I don't understand how so many plans fell
like water through
my hands.

But you, you color my black and white days.
You color my black and white days.
You do.
You color my black and white days.

I have changed as much as I can.
There's only so much change in one man.
I'm still trying to find who I am.
I would turn and run, back to where I begun,
But it's easier said than done.
Then there's you...

To color my black and white days.
You color my black and white days.
You do.
You color my black and white days,
Color my black and white days.
I can count on you,
To color my black and white days,
Color my black and white...

When your here
I come to life.
When your here
How I burn to feel everything that
I feel we touch.

You color my black and white days.
You color my black and white days.
You do.
You color my black and white days,
Color my black and white days.

But I wonder who colors your black
and white days.
And colors me black and white.

(Makes my eyes wet.
He colors mine, too.)
