Grey St

Oh look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She just goes stumbling through her memories
Staring out on to Grey Street

She thinks, Hey,
How did I come to this?
I dream myself a thousand times around the world,
But I can’t get out of this place

There’s an emptiness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
But all the colors mix together – to grey
And it breaks her heart

How she wishes it was different
She prays to God most every night
And though she swears he doesn’t listen
There’s still a hope in her he might

She says, I pray
But they fall on deaf ears,
Am I supposed to take it on myself?
To get out of this place

There’s loneliness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now
It feels like cold blue ice in her heart
When all the colors mix together – to grey
And it breaks her heart

There’s a stranger speaks outside her door
Says take what you can from your dreams
Make them as real as anything
It’d take the work out of the courage

But she says, Please
There’s a crazy man that’s creeping outside my door,
I live on the corner of Grey Street and the end of the world

There’s an emptiness inside her
And she’d do anything to fill it in
And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now
It’s more like cold blue ice in her heart

She feels like kicking out all the windows
And setting fire to this life
She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together – to grey
And it breaks her heart
It breaks her heart
To grey 

Am I Ever Gonna Change? I’m tired of being me,
and I don’t like what I see,
I’m not who I appear to be
So I start off every day,
down on my knees I will pray,
for a change in any way
But as the day goes by,
I live through another lie,
if it’s any wonder why

AM I EVER GONNA CHANGE
WILL I ALWAYS STAY THE SAME
IF I SAY ONE THING,
THEN I DO THE OTHER
IT’S THE SAME OLD SONG,
THAT GOES ON FOREVER
AM I EVER GONNA CHANGE
I’M THE ONLY ONE TO BLAME
WHEN I THINK I’M RIGHT,
I WIND UP WRONG
IT’S A FUTILE FIGHT,
GONE ON TOO LONG

Please tell me if it’s true,
am I too old to start anew,
cause that’s what I want to do
But time and time again,
when I think I can,
I fall short in the end
So why do I even try,
Will it matter when I die,
Can anyone hear my cry?

AM I EVER GONNA CHANGE
TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
MY WILL IS WEAK
AND MY FLESH TOO STRONG
THIS PEACE I SEEK
TILL THY KINGDOM COMES

Who Cares? Tell me, Jesus,
are you angry?
One more sheep has,
just gone astray
A hardening of hearts,
turning to stone
Wandering off,
so far from home
So many children,
losing time
Walk in darkness,
looking for a sign
Chasing their rainbows,
the future looks so bright
Slowly we’re losing,
Sight of the light

WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?
TELL ME WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?

All alone,
out in the cold
Can’t look back,
am I growing old
I chose a path,
is this my fate
Am I finding out,
the truth too late

Here I am,
a naked man
Nothing to hide
with empty hands
Remember me,
I am the one
Who lost his way,
your Prodigal Son

WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?
TELL ME WHO CARES?
WHO CARES?

AM I EVER GONNA CHANGE
WILL I ALWAYS STAY THE SAME
SAY ONE THING
THEN I DO THE OTHER
SAME OLD SONG
GOES ON FOREVER
RISE, RISE ‘N SHINE
A NEW DAY IS COMING
YES IT IS!
