*** Black Is... ***

Black is the colour of my true love's hair in the morning when we rise x2
In the morning when we rise
That's the time
The ever loving time
I love the best

Brown was the colour of my true love's skin when I saw him on that night x2
When I saw him on that night
On that night
That fateful night
I loved him best

Red was the blood running from his head on the pavement by daylight x2
On the pavement by daylight
How many more
Of our young men
Will have to die

Silver was the bullet that left him dead in the gutter with no pride x2
In the gutter with no pride
No way to die
No way to die
No way to die

Blue was the feeling that I got when I touched him at dawn x2
When I touched him at dawn
Oh so cold
So blue with cold
My love grown old

Yellow was the colour of the witness' back in the courtroom of his peers x2
In the courtroom of his peers
Where he lied
At the trial
At the trial

Grey is the colour of my true love's dust in the pillow on my bed x2
In the pillow on my bed
I lay my head
I lay my head
So full of dread
