Black And White World

Black And White World

Elvis Costello & the Attractions

I was looking at the black and white world
It seemed so exciting
If you`d only put me back to back with that girl
When the night`s inviting
With just a little lighting
There`ll never be days like that again
When I was just a boy and men were men
You never go from moment to moment
You`re the living double of a single fiction
You`re very colorful with your compliments
As you feel the finger`s friction
It`s a freeze-frame
Still it`s real life
You don`t want to look
Cause you've seen the film and you`ve read the book

I was looking at the black and white world
Trying to name some pin-up
Those days she was just a beautiful girl
Now she`s framed and hung up
I thought she was young
Up until I saw her last night in close detail
Though they all fade away when you`re so pale
It`s more than just a physical attraction
It starts with a face and ends up a fixation
But you`re never gonna feel a fraction
Of the way it used to work on your imagination
When you were looking at the black and white world...
