Green & Gray Lyrics

I'm in a room full of people
Hanging on one person's breath
We would all vote him most
likely to be loved to death
I hope he still want it
But it might remind him of when,
he aimed for the bulls eye and
hit it 9 times out of 10.
That one time his hand slipped
and I saw the dart sail away.
I don't know where it landed but
I'm guessing between green and gray.
Well I thought nothing of it, but it
still haunts him like a ghost
With all eyes upon him, except
two that matter the most.

CHORUS

He says, "Green is the color that
everyone sees all around me.
Gray is the color I see
around her she's just a blur."
The more the crowd cheers the
less I can hear and they don't
really care what I play.
It might be for her but for now
it's between green and gray.

We payed and we cheered now
we're gone and to us that feels right
But for him everyone of those
evenings turns into a night
With another hotel room where
he lays awake to pretend
that he's doing fine with is
notebook and discman for friends

CHORUS

He says "Green is the color that
everyone sees all around me
Gray is the color I see around
her she's just a blur." Night after
night what I hear what I write
fills the room and my head starts to sway
It might be for her but for now
it's between green and gray

I want you to love me he whispers
unable to speak and he wonders a
loud why feelings so strong make
the body so weak. Then he awoke.
Now he's scared to death somebody heard.
If it was you, and you know her please
don't say a word.
