(music: A. Vandenberg, lyrics: R. Young)
There's a shadow in my life, between the black and white
And it's blocking out the light
I listened to what you said, it still echoes in my head
As I lie alone in bed
In the thickness of a line, there's a distance undefined
The confusion's got me blind
A dark shade of grey, tried to understand the things you say
As you throw it all away, yeah
It's a dark shade of grey, there's got to be another way
To hang on for one more day
So won't you please explain, why the sunshine turns to rain
Why the pleasure turns to pain
I need for you to say, when your heart began to stray
When the fires, they've all burned away
As I look back in my mind, could I really be so blind
I guess I, I guess I missed the signs
It's a dark shade of grey, tried to understand the things you say
As you throw it all away, yeah
Now it's a dark shade of grey, there's got to be another way
To hang on for one more day
(Solo)
Oh, I'm so blinded now
Well you know it's never clear, when emotions interfere
When you give in to the tears
In the dark it's hard to see, when a heart begins to bleed
It's got me, it's got me fallin' right down to my knees
Now it's a dark shade of grey, tried to understand the things you say
Don't you throw it away, don't you throw it now
Now it's a dark shade of grey, there's got to be another way
To hang on for one more day
Oh, baby baby baby baby, there's a dark, there's a dark shade of grey now baby
While the sunshine turns to rain, while it turns to pain
('Cause it's a focus in the place) oh baby
Can't you feel it, can't you feel the cryin' for me and you now... (to fade)
