Color Blind--Lyrics

by Jim Daddario, Catt Gravitt, and Karen Taylor-Good

VERSE (Alto) She got into a battle with her granddad. The subject is as old as the generation gap. She can't believe he's so uptight. He's mad that her best friend's not white. She doesn't understand. It makes her awf'ly sad.

CHORUS (Alto) She'd trade the midnight blue in the morning sky. She'd give up ev'ry shade of green in ev'ry tree in sight. And she'd kiss red goodbye and never shed a tear, Let the gold in ev'ry sunset fade away from here. 'Cause fear would never win, and skin would just be skin, if we were color blind.

VERSE (Tenor) He got into a battle with his grandma. The subject is exhausting, ancient dialogue. He can't believe that she's so mad. She's angry his best friend's not black. He wishes it would change. It brings him so much pain.

CHORUS (Both) He'd trade the midnight blue in the morning sky. He'd give up ev'ry shade of green in ev'ry tree in sight. And he'd kiss red goodbye and never shed a tear, Let the gold in ev'ry sunset fade away from here. 'Cause fear would never win, and skin would just be skin, if we were color blind.

BRIDGE And if Jesus loves them red and yellow black and white, Why can't we get it right?

CHORUS I'd trade the midnight blue in the morning sky. I'd give up ev'ry shade of green in ev'ry tree in sight. And I'd kiss red goodbye and never shed a tear, And let the gold in ev'ry sunset fade away from here. 'Cause fear would never win, And we could let love in, Skin would just be skin, if we were color blind, if we were color blind, color blind.
