LyricsEdit

FinalEdit

If you get lonely, think of me only
Prison isn't going to keep me from you
Remember Coney Island and how we
Wade into the water till the waves turned blue

Nobody does have to know that our love's alive
Keep it on the low, if you want to hide
Got that same address if you want to write
One Greenwich Avenue, wishin' and thinkin' of you

Living without you's like TV in black and white
You turned me on and brought color into my life
When I'm around you, suddenly, I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

Ah-ah-ah, woah-woah-woah, ooh-ooh

If you get lonely, think of this only
Heaven hasn't forgotten about you, ooh
Though you can't hold me, pick up and phone me
Use your one phone call on your ex-girl, boo

I won't tell a single soul how you spend your nights
In that single cell, holding your pillow tight
If you really are afraid, then you ought to know
That you're the one I want, the one I want forevermore

Living without you's like TV in black and white
You turned me on and brought color into my life
When I'm around you, suddenly, I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

I know you get scared sometimes, boy
Nothing to be feared when you're in my heart
Troubles come in threes but in your case
They came in millions and trillions, but that's alright

Living without you's like TV in black and white
You turned me on and brought color into my life
When I'm around you, suddenly, I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

(Ah-ah-ah)
Like TV in black and white
(Woah-woah-woah, ooh-ooh)
Like TV in black and white

(Ah-ah-ah)
Like TV in black and white
(Woah-woah-woah, ooh-ooh)
Like TV in black and white

DemoEdit

If you get lonely, darling, just hold me
Prison isn't going to keep me from you
Do like you told me, pick up and phone me
Use your one phone call on your ex-love, boo

Nobody will have to know that our love's alive
Keep it on the low if you want to hide
I've got the same address that you left behind
On Greenwich Avenue, wishin' and dreamin' of you

Living without you's like TV in black and white
Dark when I found you, touched me and turned on the light
When I'm around you, suddenly I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

If you get lonely, think of this only
Heaven hasn't forgotten about you, ooh
Remember Coney Island and how we
Wade into the waves until the water's blue

I won't tell a single soul that you cry at night
Sit in single cells, holdin' that pillow tight
Baby, think of home, it will be all right
If you feel sad, remember what we had

Living without you's like TV in black and white
Dark when I found you, touched me to turn on the light
When I'm around you, suddenly I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes

Bein' without you's like winter with no reprieve
Summer, I found you, flowers bloom and I believe
That I have found true love, I hope you never leave
Never leave

So dry your eyes, dry your eyes
No bad surprises left in store for you
When you get home, you can change the tides
And start anew, start anew
(New, new, new, new)

Living without you's like TV in black and white
Dark when I found you, touched me to turn on the light
When I'm around you, suddenly I realize
That I was blind before I saw the world through your eyes
