"Roses red, violets blue but who gives a damn?
Lovers and friends, just thrown to black and white.
Oh if I die, if I die, it's 'cause I"m building up a few ten goodbyes.."
Can you look back on any of your past relationships and remember that one you just couldn't get out of or completely end? You "build up a few ten goodbyes" because every time you attempt to end things, it kills you everytime. That moment you walk away and your heart stops for a moment and you forget to breathe. One of the saddest things about looking back on a lover who was also your friend, is the reality that it turns "black and white" - plain and simple - it is no longer, and there is no life to what kept you both breathing in sync.
At least that's my interpretation anyway ;)
Let me know in the comments how you interpreted the song. Let's #songverse about it.
