Shades of Grey

Verse 1:

Everything begins to

Fade away

Into shades of grey.

I wander these dark roads

Without turning back.



With eyes open,

I wander through the darkness

In shades of grey.

As I slip further into reverie,

Won't you take me home tonight

Before I slip away

Into shades of grey?


Verse 2:

Reality scares me to death,

I'm afraid to close my eyes.

My life flashes before my eyes:

Flashbacks and nightmares

That you cannot imagine

Fades away into

Shades of grey.



Give a little love to me

'Cause I need you.

I only want you.

As the world slips away

Into shades of grey,

I awake from my reverie.
