I see everything in black and white
Technicolor is for the positive
But to make it to the other side,
I'm going to have to sacrifice part of my life
With positivity doesn't come guaranteed happiness
In fact, we're more likely to fall
But perhaps, instead of expecting the hard ground,
We should expect not to hit the ground at all

And I'm a pessimist
But this year, I might be all right
As long as you're here with me,
The good times will never be too far from sight
I know I'm no fun
But sometimes we play a game for two
One where we switch our roles
And I'll see the Earth from a star's point of view

You're no life-changer, but you're a catalyst for change
Good change or bad change, it's really all the same
But maybe I can look through a lens
Both rose-colored and technicolor at the same time
So I can see both reality and fantasy
And everything will still look marvelously sublime
But don't worry, I won't forget about you
And together, to negativity we'll bid adieu

And I'm a pessimist
But this year, I might be all right
As long as you're here with me
The good times will never be too far from sight
I know I'm no fun
But sometimes we play a game for two
One where we switch our roles
And I'll see the Earth from a star's point of view

I'm not sure if I can push this box out the door
Because we all know negativity's always looking for more
And while I'm still here, I cannot see the light
But with you on your way, I'm sure the sun will be shining bright

And I'm a pessimist
But this year, I might be all right
As long as you're here with me
The good times will never be too far from sight
I know I'm no fun
But sometimes we play a game for two
One where we switch our roles
And I'll see the Earth from a star's point of view
