  • 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
    In the sea up to the sky.

    I don't want to wait until tomorrow
    To tell you how I'd feel the rest of my life
    You don't want a waste another minute to realize
    Walking on the dark side of the evening
    Baby it is 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?

    I'm on the top step looking down
    And their coming up to me
    It's 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.

    I don't want to wait until tomorrow
    To tell you how I'd feel the rest of my life
    You don't want a waste another minute to realize
    Walking on the dark side of the evening
    Baby it is 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
    With the light poles
    Over a dark street
    No one else knows
    So take my hands
    I'll carry you, you can carry me.

    'Cause I don't want to wait until tomorrow
    To tell you how I'd feel the rest of my lifeWriter/s: MATHEW KEARNEY, MICHAEL LOGAN
