lyrics

You start your night in static black and white
Shadows faded grey, clouded moon so slight
And in the silence you try to sing
But move so slow
You know it's not enough

But listen here, it doesn't have to be
This country's wrapped in gold from sea to shining sea
And when you see your reflection in the waves
Tall and clear
You'll know you're here with me
A quality unknown to me

All my colors swim below the yellow brick that paves my road
And if you need to change your hue just dare to dream it too

There's nothing wrong with a somnambulist life
Until the colors draining draw you towards the knife
But like the yellow knight fresh from the spell
Standing tall
I'm not at all afraid
Of qualities unknown to me

All my colors swim below the yellow brick that paves my road
And if you need to change your hue just dare to dream it too

All my colors swim below the yellow brick that paves my road
And if you need to change your hue just dare to dream it too

All my colors swim below the yellow brick that paves my road
And if you need to change your hue just dare to dream it too
The dreams you dare to dream come true
