Correctness of a phrase

    Hello everyone,

    Here a question about the correctness of a phrase which is meant for the lyrics in a song. Not being a native English speaker, I'm in a doubt which of these phrases is perfectly correct/incorrect in English?

    1. "Do you dream in colors or you dream in black and white?"

    2. "Do you dream in colors or dream in black and white?'

    (Meaning: "your dreams in your sleep are they in colors or in black and white?")

    Or if that's ambiguous, then wouldn't it be better to put it:

    3. "Do you dream in colors or it is in black and white?"

    Thanks for your feedback and best vibes !

    It depends on the beat count that you need so its difficult to say what would work best with your song but if your looking for the correct phrase
    then I would personally have written....

    Do you dream in colours or do you dream in black and white
    or
    Do you dream in colours or is it just in black and white

    Hope that helps Milly x
