6/20/2000 alternate lyrics

Oh just look at how she listens
oh she stare out on Grey Street
it seems a million years she's stuck here
but says nothing of what she thinks
she thinks, hey
how did I come to this
I dreamt like anybody else when I
I would be a beautiful princess

And the rocks in her heart fall
evidence she rode light in
and the colors mix together
to weigh
and break me out

Oh weathered on 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 says, I pray
but then my prayer fall on deaf ears
I'm supposed to take it all myself
to get out of this place

She feels the rocks in her heart fall
and she rolls down in the prayer
she hears a car scream out from outside
and she wishes sometimes on fathers
but the colors mix together
to grey
and wake me up

Oh go is admitting
he says take what you can from your dreams
make them real as anything
it takes the work out of the courage
she said, please
there's a crazy man standing outside my door
I live on the corner of a dead end street
and the end of the world

Oh then the rocks all in her heart fall
oh she dreams a way to light
and she knows no one will lift her
so it might as well do it herself
and then we roll down and worry
only we'll say light
but all the colors mix together
to grey
on Grey Street
on Grey Street
to Grey Street

Oh and thud sound and you love rain
hope alone around maybe it's right
he sing dance for things you are holding
no one else will do it, fall down
reach up and grab hold of the sunlight
when you need a way this one rush out
you're holding on your heaven
only yeah, yeah, get right
when all the colors mix together
to grey
and break me up
and wake me up
to wake, yeah
Grey Street
main lyrics
Oh, look at how she listens
she says nothing of what she thinks
she just goes stumbling through her memories
staring out onto Grey Street
she thinks, hey
how did I come to this?
I dreamed 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

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 he might
she says, I pray
oh, but they fall on deaf ears
am I supposed to take it on myself
to get out of this place?

Oh, there's a 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
oh, it'd take the workd 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

Oh, 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
oh, it breaks her heart
to grey, yeah
it breaks her heart, yeah
