Yesterday/Black And White


Okay.. well, I've written another song this week. This one's finished. And it's pretty good in my books- but that could be just because I love new material. :P

The entire song is with picking, it's slow, and my hand goes into a cramp when I play it on some tries. lol "No pain, no gain," I suppose.

Right off the bat I was just gonna call it Yesterday. But really, how could I compete with the Beatles? And when I think about it, there's probably tons of songs with that name. Along with Breathe, and anything to do with Rain. Which I, proudly, have not written such a song. ^-^ Well, at least not titled that. ;)

Any who, it's still in the decision process. It's either gonna be Yesterday, or I'm leaning more towards Black And White. See what you think..

******

I never thought that it could be like this

And I never thought that you could be like this

We were more than this, it used to seem

Lets pretend it's worth it, but honestly


It's so black and white

All the colors seem to fade to grey

I'm losing fight

for all we used to have yesterday


It's not okay

It's not okay

It's not okay

I'm not okay , it's not like it was yesterday.


Can't you see that all you were is left to me?

Can't you tell that all you do is for them, and not for you?

Why did you have to change for the worst?

Cause I don't know, I just don't know if it can be reversed


Your so black and white

All your colors seemed to fade to grey

I'm losing fight

for all we used to have yesterday


It's not okay

It's not okay

It's not okay

I'm not okay , it's not like it was yesterday.


You did say

you couldn't live without me

Then why do you try?

Why do you try so damn hard?


And now..


It's black and white

Cause all your colors seemed to fade to grey

Seems like were losing sight

of all we used to have yesterday


And that's not okay

It's not okay

That's not okay

I'm not okay, I'm not like I was yesterday.

Oh, and you probably noticed that there was swearing in it once, again. Same with the last song I posted. Their both about the same person, the same circumstance. I guess it's what works me up. But, I don't think damn is much of a swear word anymore. I think it's the lightest one. I'm not even going to bother censoring it. lol

So that's all for tonight.
I'm very tired. And tomorrow's Halloween! I'll be staying up PRETTY late. :D

I is excited! =]

Type to you soon, more song lyrics and thoughts to come. :]
