lyrics

Blacks and Whites

Would you play some chess with me ?
Blacks and whites, for all to see
How it all comes down to this
Nothing here – in life is free.

Won’t you play some chess with me ?
Blacks and whites are plain to see, the
Longer game, the fewer pawns
Nothing here – will last till dawn.

Would you talk it through with me ?
Blacks and whites are all we see
In this shaded universe
Nothing here is- neither wish nor curse.

Won’t you talk it through with me ?
Blacks and whites won’t do for me
Neither sad nor glad to sing
Queen is lost – on goes the King.
