City of Black & White

This song is by Mat Kearney and appears on the album City of Black & White (2009).

This whole city's black and white
Tell me what is your color
Could it be the same as mine
Faded greens and blue street lights
There's a red fire burning from the sea up to the sky

'Cause I don't want to wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't want a waste another minute when you realize
Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you who opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water
The city of black and white
Won't you just stay
Won't you just stay

I'm on the top
Still looking down
And coming up to me is where the whole world wants to be found
Golden rings and coffee brown
There's white flag waving where my heart is on the ground

'Cause I don't want to wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't want a waste another minute when you realize
Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water
The city of black and white
Won't you just stay
Won't you just stay

Won't you just stay now when the light glows over a dark street
No one else knows
So take my hand
I'll carry you
You can carry me

'Cause I don't want to wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't want a waste another minute when you realize
Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you who opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water
The city of black and white
Won't you just stay
Won't you just stay

Won't you just stay now
Stay now
Stay now when the light glows
Won't you just stay
Won't you just stay
