Superfruit

"Black & White"

[Intro: Todrick Hall]
I lived in a world full of people so unwilling to see the color bars beyond the endless static. Too content with living life like a re-run of an old black and white sitcom, which is odd, 'cause, well, it was the 90's, and everywhere I went, people would say, "Wow, you are definitely unique." What they were really trying to say was:

[Pre-Refrain: Kirstin Maldonado & Superfruit]
Hey dreamer, why you gotta dream so big?
How you gonna fit inside this box?
We're trying hard to fit you in
Hey dreamer, why you gotta dream so bright?
For you to dream in technicolor's not okay
And it ain't right, it's black and white

[Refrain: Superfruit & Kirstin Maldonado]
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left

[Verse 1: Todrick Hall]
Well you can move forward, but don't step out of line
Try to be content, this world is tintless
But it's far from colorblind
And I was so sure someday I would find
The crack between the black and white
A fact that might ignite a change of mind

[Pre-Chorus: All]
But they said who do you think you are?
What do you think you'll be?
Why you run around town thinking all these crazy things
That ain't true, so just know your place
Just wasn't meant to be
Try and you'll get a taste of good reality

[Chorus: All]
And they say dream, but not too big
Reach, but not too wide
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white
I said leap, but not too high
Shine, but not too bright
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white

[Refrain: All]
I said left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left

[Verse 2: Scott Hoying]
Well, you can move mountains, but don't you try to climb
You can write the songs, don't get me wrong
Just know the words can never rhyme
And I was so sure, I gave them a little time
Maybe they'd ignore it, press fast forward
But they simply pressed rewind

[Pre-Chorus: All]
And they say who do you think you are?
What do you think you'll be?
Why you run around town thinking all these crazy things
That ain't true, so just know your place
Just wasn't meant to be
Try and you'll get a taste of good reality

[Chorus: All]
And they say dream, but not too big
Reach, but not too wide
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white
I said leap, but not too high
Shine, but not too bright
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white

[Refrain: All]
I said left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left

[Bridge: Mitch Grassi]
No dreams allowed, no standing out
Stay in the crowd where it's black and white
Heads in the clouds, just come back down
Feet on the ground, 'cause it's black and white

[Chorus: All]
Dream, but not too big
Reach, but not too wide
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white
I said, "Leap, but not too high
Shine, but not too bright
Think the impossible as long as it's in black and white

[Outro: Kirstin Maldonado & Superfruit]
I said, dreamer, why you gotta dream so big?
How you gonna fit inside this box?
We're trying hard to fit you in
Hey dreamer, why you gotta dream so bright?
For you to dream in technicolor's not okay is not okay
And it ain't right, it's black and white


[Refrain: All]
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
Left, right, right, left, right, left
