7/9/2000 alternate lyrics

Oh now late at night we wonder
all through the drinks we see alright
if we could only hang together
the girl, the boy would be alright
but she thinks, hey
how did it come to this
it was so easy when I was a child
I feel as old as his rain

And then the hope in her heart swells
and she sees the late in light
that makes the colors mix together
to grey
and wakes her up

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

And then the hope in her heart swells
and she feels as if she's right
knowing all too well it's laziness
that when lonely wakes her at night
and the colors mix together
to grey
wake her up

Oh she said of love, indifference
she prays to God most every night
although she swears he doesn't listen
there's tiny hope in her that he just might
she says, I pray
but my prayers fall on deaf ears
am I supposed to take it all myself
to get out of this place

She feels the hope in her heart roar
all the rainbow made a sound
when all lonely down and down off her life
over this [?] mouths
oh my now wander in the morning
won't see her, say light
and the colors mix together
to grey
and break her out
wake her up
to break her up

And now laid up all over
in the moment see the light
oh and my lonely down of her heart wrench
on the side that cuts like a knife
and man I walked out the river's over
oh the window wait is up
I love the moment of a story
won't leave her, yeah say light
all the colors mix together
to grey
on Grey Street
on Grey Street
to grey, 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
