Gruff Rhys
Monochrome (Portrait Version)
[Verse 1]
Anyway, I can try anything
It's the same circle leading to nowhere and I'm tired now
Anyway, I've lost my face, my dignity, my look
Everything is gone and I'm tired now
Don't be scared, I found a good job
And I go to work every day on my old bicycle you loved

[Verse 2]
I am piling up some unread books under in my bed
And I really think I'll never read again
No concentration, just a white disorder everywhere around me
I'm so tired now
Don't worry, I often go to dinners and parties with some old friends
Who care for me, take me back home and stay

[Chorus]
Monochrome floors, monochrome wall
Only absence near me, nothing but silence around me
Monochrome flat, monochrome life
Only absence near me, nothing but silence around me

[Verse 3]
Sometimes I search an event or something to remember
But I don't have anything on my mind
Sometimes I open the windows and listen to folk
Walking down the street There is life out there
Don't be scared, I found a good job and I go to work every day on my old bicycle you loved

[Verse 4]
Anyway, I can try anything
It's the same circle leading to nowhere and I'm tired now
Anyway, I've lost my face, my dignity, my look
Everything is gone and I'm tired now
Don't worry, I often go to dinners and parties with some old friends
Who care for me, take me back home and stay

[Chorus]
Monochrome floors, monochrome walls
Only absence near me, nothing but silence around me
Monochrome flat, monochrome life
Only absence near me, nothing but silence around me
Nothing but silence around me
Monochrome flats, monochrome land
Only absence near me, nothing but silence around me
[Outro]
Oh, oh
