Grey Street

1/365 Photo Manipulations Project

 

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 cant get out of this place

 

Theres an emptiness inside her

And shed 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 it doesnt listen

Theres still a hope in her it 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

 

Theres loneliness inside her

And shed do anything to fill it in

And though its 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

 

Theres a stranger speaks outside her door

Says take what you can from your dreams

Make them as real as anything

Itd take the work out of the courage

 

But she says, Please

Theres a crazy man thats creeping outside my door,

I live on the corner of Grey Street and the end of the world

 

Theres an emptiness inside her

And shed do anything to fill it in

And though its red blood bleeding from her now

Its 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 ♪♬
