7/30/2000 alternate lyrics

Oh, look at how she listens
she says not a thing of what she thinks
she list- love and inside dreaming
she stares out onto Grey Street
she thinks, hey
how did I come to this
I dreamt a thousand miles across the world
I feel like I haven't moved an inch here

And then the rocks in her heart roll
and like wings she waves them bright
but all the colors mix together
to grey
it breaks her heart

Oh, omnipotent indifference
she prays to God most every night
although she swears he doesn't listen
there's hope in her that he just might
she thinks, I pray
oh, but they fall on deaf ears
I'm supposed to take it on myself
to get out of this place

But then the hopes from her heart swell
and she remembers the sky rained in
oh, and bright lights all wet and all rain
like a rainbow swimming in
oh, but then the colors mix together
to grey
it breaks her heart

Oh, the sounds out beside her door
says, take what you can from your dreams
make it real as anything
it'd take the work out of your courage
she said, please
there's a crazy man creeping outside my door
I live on the corner of Grey Street
and the end of the world

Oh, but then the ropes in her heart fall
heavy winds into the blue so light
oh, and it's red blood wails inside her
and the hopes swells up to the red light
oh man, I know doubt in the morning
we won't leave her, say light
but all the colors mix together
to grey
it breaks her heart
oh, it breaks her heart
breaks her heart, run run run run

She rode like the road
and blue like black skies in
oh watch the yellow, red painted over
let the blackness fold you right in
oh man, now it's lonely down in the walkway
and the gentle wait is one wide
oh might hopeless on it's open
won't leave her, yeah say light
but all the colors mix together
to grey
when the rain come down
when the rain comes down
to grey, yeah
Grey Street
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

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 it doesn't listen
There's 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"

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

[2000 Studio Sessions version]

Look at how she listens
she says nothing of what she thinks
just listens to her muses
and by the kitchen sink
she thinks, "Hey,
one little bit of this I've made in some life
how did it end like this?"

And the rocks in her heart fall
and she feels the weighted lines
and the colors mix together -- to grey
Grave Street

Bane of the difference
she prays to God most every night
although she swears he doesn't listen
there's hope in her that He just might
she said "I pray,
but they fall on deaf ears
I'm supposed to take it all myself
to get out of this place?"

And some rocks in her heart fall
and then she roped the light in
pain our date is over
and again she sees the pain
and the colors mix together -- to grey
on Grave Street

So cold it began
"take what you can from your dreams
make it real as anything
takes the work out of the courage"
she said, "Please
there's someone sleeping outside my door
I live on the corner of Grey Street
and the end of the world"

And the rock in the heartland
is as hopeless as the day she came
and the man she calls her father
ignores her and ignores her pain
when I walk out in the morning
will the lover say light
and the colors mix together -- to grey
on Grave Street
on Grave Street
this Grave Street, here go...

I said "look down at your heaven
don't convince yourself your done
just cause the things around you seem heavy
doesn't mean you can't get off this ground
and the lonely down in the heartland
move out as our way it's over
all my notice of your worries
will no longer ready lie"
and the colors mix together -- to grey
on Grave Street
on Grave Street
to grey
