i'm my shadow looking for the real me,
searching outside the clouds for the sun
who's there for me.

i'm gray reaching for the light
hoping and praying for true sight,

and i'm the black that completely agrees
that together we'd make more colors
than seen.

i'm a bit of both,
the black and the white,

so i'm me

and to God
that's Alright.
