Developing the Negatives

And I see the world in black and white

I find it hard to choose what's right

It's so hard to understand

Why you can't just take my hand

Lead me away to somewhere safe

Where my own thoughts can't get me

My laughter, my tears;

my overwhelming fears

all come back to you

All the color has slowly gone

I find it harder to move on

This black curtain drowning in sorrow

And an uncertain promise of tomorrow

Take me with you to a bright, new world

Cast the dark past into the shadows

My hopes, my dreams

Begin to fade, it seems

But it all comes back to you.

As I see the world in black and white

I can't bring myself to do what's right

I don't trust what I understand...

So will you please just take my hand?
