Verse 1:

Outside the rain is pouring down my window
Pain in my heart it grows strong without you here
My nights they seem so long and so cold and alone
without your arms to hold I can feel you near


You can take my heart I won?t put up a fight
Even though I?ve tried so hard
With all these pieces of my life they fade to
Black and White they fade to Black and White

Verse 2:

I?m staring at this empty page Waiting for the words to come
to my mind what I feel it isn?t easy to find
I wondering to myself what went wrong, what went right
and why do we fight I still need you here with me


There are no shades of grey left to wash over me
You the only one I want, your the only thing I need
If I could make you see, that I need you here with me

Nice tune. Enjoyed the Vocal and the songwriting. Well done.
