flying colors lyrics – keith whitley

when you walked out of my life
i didn’t think that i’d survive
hope was growing dimmer day by day

but much to my surprise
lord i made it out alive
an’ my world is looking anything but grey

i came through with flyin’ colors
a little black and blue
from the wear and tear
but love got the best of me
an’ i turn green with jealousy
when you made it crystal clear you did not care

i came through with flyin’ colors
my eyes are red from cryin’ the whole night through
i should win the purple heart
’cause you tore mine all apart
but i came through with flyin’ colors
after losin’ you

yes i’ve got a yell’er streak
’cause i know your places weak
an’ i still get pale whenever you’re in sight

i may shade out of my mind
oh but i’m not color blind
’cause i’ve learned that love ain’t only black and white

i came through with flyin’ colors
a little black and blue
from the wear and tear
but love got the best of me
an’ i turn green with jealousy
when you made it crystal clear you did not care

i came through with flyin’ colors
my eyes are red from cryin’ the whole night through
oh i should win the purple heart
’cause you tore mine all apart
but i came through with flyin’ colors
after losin’ you

oh i should win the purple heart
’cause you tore mine all apart
but i came through with flyin’ colors
after losin’ you
