it’s a still grey day


it’s a still grey day

and all that i see

is a still grey sky

my mind is wandering…

and the still grey fence

and the still grey suits

there the still grey silence

suddenly commutes.

 

 

in the reflection in the mirror

in the corner of my eye

as the windowpane becomes

like an unsuspected spy

and the clock strikes nine

and the clock strikes ten

but does anybody care

where the grey has been?

where the grey has been?

and the grey comes down

and the grey comes down

and the grey comes down…

 

 

and another drive time

down the highway of love

a nightmare in daytime

with my silhouette gone

and i’m feelin so cold

but i’m feelin so sane

in this still grey day

my mind is wandering,

my mind is wandering,

and the grey comes down

and the grey comes down

and the grey comes down…

 

 

as the world turns round

help me catch my breath

workin past boundaries

between this life and death

and the coffee is cold

and the bottle’s run dry

it’s a still grey day

is it too late to cry?

is it too late to cry?

and the grey comes down

and the grey comes down

the grey comes down….

 

i have the tune in my head. these are the lyrics. definitely a talking heads/Mike Roe (77s) sound for the singer, cadence, etc…

This is not autobiographical- it is the picture of a desparate man in desparate times…

if you want to put this to music, pingback/refer back and let’s see where it goes. I retain the copyright on the lyrics, though. Daithi
