This song is about how the world can be starkly placed before us, about not throwing down that white flag, about what brings a little color to our lives, making it rich. Of course lovers can do this if we can accept love.

Lyrics

Vertical Hold Jeanne Kuhns

Oh some days it’s a black and white world
Some days, I’m a black and white girl
Like these squares on the kitchen floor I’m standing in
I’m an optical illusion there’s no way to win
and I’m holding down this white flag
trying not to give in
trying not to give in

Oh some days it’s a black and white world
Some days I’m a black and white girl
I’m a dark horse at the starting gate but no one gives the word
My adrenaline is rising, but I’m just a flightless bird
And I’m holding down this white flag
Trying not to give in
Trying not to give in

Today I’m missing color in this colorless world
Come and touch a little blush into my face
Well that’s the job of a lover
To make the black and white bleed away, bleed away
Oh, bleed away

Oh some days it’s a black and white world
Some days I’m a black and white girl
Like my Daddy’s old TV when I was just a little girl
My verticals aren’t holding , my life is just a blur
But I’m holding down this white flag
And I’m not givin’ in
No I’m not givin’ in
I’m not givin in to this colorless, colorless, colorless world X2 no,no,no, no, ….no, no,no, no, ……no,no,no,no!
