Mary Lambert - Monochromatic Lyrics

Every morning it's the same thing
Sidewalks of people with who cares stares
My heart's too big for this city
My heart's too big for my own body
My heart's too big for you to understand me

When I close my eyes
I dream in color
But my life's in black and white
Will it ever get better
I'm not monochromatic
Nobody's monochromatic

Everybody's hurting
There's nothing more human than that
See the pieces of heart's missing
But watch how the light fills the cracks
My heart's too big for the city
My heart's too big for my own body
My heart's too big for you to understand me
Please understand me

When I close my eyes
I dream in color
My life's in black and white
But it'll get better
I'm not monochromatic
Nobody's monochromatic
Nobody's monochromatic
I'm not monochromatic

    Mary, your music gives me strength
    Your voice is like heaven
    So much emotion and understanding in your songs

    Roses are red
    I like head.

    I wanna cry in my bed

  4. Naomi Akemi

    Why is she so under rated???

  5. Tiny Eye Sim

    So beautiful. This is awesome.

  6. Stella Protest

    Namaste' Mary Lambert you are a babe and you just awesome. Often felt my heart was to big for anyone and even myself to understand at times you put words together like golden stitching your soulful depth of lyric and music is what magic is made from well done you own it like a boss n that deserves a hi five and more but well done. You found the light within sister love and light <3

  7. Sandra Cormican

    The more I listen to Mary's music the more I am loving her stuff. Mary, you are an inspiration and promote healing by providing the words that many may lack. Thank you for your heart and soul being put out for the world to see!!!

  8. Qourell Chi

    Mary, you deserve a bunch more attention and views then this. You're awesome.

  9. Spongebob Sucks

    She sounds so much like Katy Perry it's scary.

  10. Azuriadu13

    une petite merveille! tellement belle tellement talentueuse de l'adore!

  11. Karissa Drummond

    First time hearing the song, now I cant stop playing it. I'm really becoming a big fan of Mary. She has so much potential.. I can't wait to see how she grows in her career and as a person.

  12. Valerie Bell

    Is it wrong to say I don't like Mary Lambert as a person, but I like her songs? I feel the same way about Taylor Swift and an abundance of other celebrities and icons.

    Tina Corbin

    +Valerie Bell, It's not wrong to say, but I am wondering why you do not like Mary as a person. Have you ever seen her give an in-depth interview? I was a fan of her work before I viewed an interview; now I'm a super fan. She seems: honest, respectful, insightful, authentic, intelligent, humble and kind. Is it the gay thing? If yes, she is so nice, I don't think she would hold it against anyone if they are hetero. Sending you joy!

    Valerie Bell

    +Tina Corbin yes, I've seen interviews. Regardless, I disagree with the way she is as a person and the causes she supports.

    Tina Corbin

    Thanks for your reply. I respect your opinion. You did skirt my question, "Is it the gay thing?" Mary supports things like national parks, mental heath organizations and gay causes. Of the 3, the only one I can assume you take issue with is the gay causes. I am not gay, but I do support equality for ALL people and cannot justify disliking anyone over their orientation. Mostly, I respect Lambert's song writing ability...she is an amazingly gifted writer AND I like people who are authentic. She has been very honest about her struggles and for altruistic I like her. We will have to agree to disagree. Enjoy a pleasant weekend! T

    Charred to Death

    Absolutely nothing. We all have our own varying opinions. I love a lot of songs from many artists, but it doesn't mean I stalk them intensively. If we agreed with everything and anything, we would hardly be ourselves.

  13. ToxicLilCupcake

    This song reminds me of The Giver.


    @Sebastián Valdivieso Dagobah.

    The Armenian Wiggins

    Tragic Beauty
