        (repeat many many times)

This shade of gray like a certain sadness,
This cold morning light this silent madness,
Hangs in the air, hangs like a memory,
Hangs like a cloud, hangs on desperately.

Between dark and light, between was and be.
Between you and me, between you and me.

(fade in)

I remember cities, I remember rain,
Like the sound of your voice falling,
These memories and more remain.
I remember winter, I remember strain,
Like the sound of your voice breaking,
These memories and more remain.
I remember the nights, I remember pain,
Like the sound of your voice alone,
These memories and more remain.
So where do we begin, and what else can we say?
When the lines are all drawn, what should we do today?

Close my eyes a while as morning shadows play
and listen to the rain wash the long night away
Face to face we'll awake to see another day.
And with hope in our hearts, embrace this shade of gray.
