This whole city's black and white
Tell me what is your color? 'Cause it be the same as mine?
Faded greens and blue street lights
There's a red fire burning from the sea up to the sky

'Cause I don't wanna wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't wanna waste another minute when you realize

Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water the city of black and white
Won't you just stay? Won't you just stay?

I'm on a top stair looking down, if you're coming up to me
It's where the whole world wants to be found
Golden rings and coffee brown
There's a white flag waving where my heart is on the ground

'Cause I don't wanna wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't wanna waste another minute when you realize

Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water the city of black and white
Won't you just stay? Won't you just stay?

Won't you just stay now when the light goes
Under a dark street no one else knows?
So take my hands I'll carry you, you can carry me

'Cause I don't wanna wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't wanna waste another minute when you realize

Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water the city of black and white
Won't you just stay? Won't you just stay?

Won't you just stay now?
Stay now, stay now when you're that close
Won't you just stay? Won't you just stay?

'Cause I don't wanna wait until tomorrow
To tell you how I feel the rest of my life
You don't wanna waste another minute when you realize

Walking on the dark side of the evening
Maybe it was you that opened my eyes
Burning like a fire on the water the city of black and white
Won't you just stay? Won't you just stay?
