A Lack of Color
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


And when I see you
I really see you upside down
But my brain knows better
It picks you up and turns you around
Turns you around, turns you around

If you feel discouraged
When there's a lack of color here
Please don't worry lover
It's really bursting at the seams
From absorbing everything, the spectrum's A to Z

This is fact not fiction
For the first time in years
All the girls in every gillie magazine
Can't make me feel any less alone
I'm reaching for the phone
To call at 7:03 and on your machine
I slur a plea for you to come home
But I know it's too late
And I should have given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay

This is fact, not fiction
For the first time in years

And when I see you
I really see you upside down
But my brain knows better
It picks you up and turns you around
Turns you around, turns you around

If you feel discouraged
That there's a lack of color here
Please don't worry lover
It's really bursting at the seems
Absorbing everything
The spectrum's a to z

This fact not fiction
For the first time in years
And all the girls in every girlie magazine
Can't make me feel any less alone
I'm reaching for the phone
To call at 7:03 and on your machine I slur a plea for you to come home
But I know it's too late

I should have given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay

Turns you around, turns you around

If you feel discouraged

It's really bursting at the seams

To call at 7:03 [and] on your machine I slur a plea for you to come home
But i know it's too late
I should have given you a reason to stay
Given you a reason to stay [x3]

@Jenova1009 It's called disassociation. Get help. You don't have to face that alone.

My ex probably doesn't even remember this since it was just an ordinary day about 8 years ago, but I always associate this song to the day we skipped class, went to my house when everyone else was at work, and made love while this song was playing in the background. Experiencing first love is always an exciting time period in your life. We were together for half a decade, but separated years ago and parted ways on mutual grounds. I wish nothing but the best for the both of us.
