"Black" Lyrics

Pearl Jam

Hey
Hey yeah uh

Sheets of empty canvas
Untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me
As her body once did

Oh, all five horizons
Revolved around her soul
As the Earth to the sun
Now the air I've tasted and breathed
Has taken a turn

Ooh oh, and all I taught her was
Everything
Ooh oh, I know she gave me all that she wore

And now my bitter hands
Chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything
Oh, the pictures have
All been washed in black
Tattooed everything

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play, yeah
I can feel their laughter
So why do I sear?

Ooh huh, and twisted thoughts that spin
'Round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can
Drop away

And now my bitter hands
Cradle broken glass
Of what was everything
All the pictures have
All been washed in black
Tattooed everything

All the love gone bad
Turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am
All I will be, yeah

Uh-huh
Uh-huh
Woo

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
I know you'll be a star
In somebody else's sky
But why, why, why can't it be
A-can't it be mine?
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ah ha hey
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ooh
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Oh ah yeah
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Uh ooh hoo

(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)

Ah hey
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ha ha
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ha ha yeah ha
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ha ha ha ha ha yeah hey yeah

(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Yeah
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Yeah yeah
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ah hey yeah
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo, hoo)
Ah ha, ah ha

(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo)
Ha hoo hoo
(Ooh hoo) Ooh
(Ooh hoo) Ooh yeah uh huh
(Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo) Hoo
