Shades of Grey

Album: From The Roots Up (2012)
  • Thought it was love, memories scope the lies
    That lead me far from here, here, far from here
    Trying hard to silence all you say but
    You stay in my ear, you stay in my ear
    Because everything you didn’t want
    Became a part of me
    All the things you asked for
    I just could not see
    Everything you are, everything you are
    Everything you are, left a broken heartbeat

    [Chorus]
    Through the darkest shades of grey
    I see beauty in the rain
    I find myself, I find myself
    Go and ... go and free walk alone in the night
    Through the darkest shades of grey I see beauty in the rain
    ... light, call out to a stranger and I
    But it was youuuuhuuu, youuuuuhuuu

    Sleeping alone I cried out, for you in my dream
    No matter how hard I try to change you
    You won’t change with me
    Because everything you didn’t want
    Became a part of me
    All the things you asked for
    I just could not see
    Everything you are, everything you are
    Everything you are, left a broken heartbeat

    [Chorus]

    So let me run away, run away now
    I got to run away, run away
    I’m gonna run away, run away
    So let me run away, run away now
    Watch me run away, run away now
    I’m gonna run away, run away
    So watch me run away, run away now
