Song Description

A man is wondering how his life ended up the way it is, and at that moment he notices a former "friend" passing by. The friend doesn't even recognize him and acts pious...this song is about how any of us can be either person at any time.

Story Behind the Song

Having worked as a professional firefighter/paramedic I've had the distinct pleasure of meeting some amazing folks. These people come from every walk of life; yet, so many of them are forgotten due to circumstances that can befall us all. I wanted to pu

Lyrics

Color Me Grey
Words and Music By James Horning

Verse 1
I�m sitting here and trying to think just how my chips did fall.
How did I manage to lose it all?
One day on a mountain, the next well not so tall
How did I manage to just up and lose it all?

Then you have to pass by, do you dare recall?
Yes you once knew me, back when I was me.

Chorus 1
Don�t stare piously and pity-shake your head
There was a time when you would hear all that I said
Well I�m still gonna be here no matter what you say
Don�t pretend to care about me and Don�t Color Me Grey

Verse 2
Well I�ve new friends at Rainbow�s End that you and your pawns should meet
Here we drink our coffee black as dirt and never sweet
Some talk in whispers and others up and shout
You�d have to be here to know what that�s all about, all about yeah-yeah

Sure it�ll never happen to somebody like you
Well If you only knew, someday it may be you real soon

Chorus 2
And all your reality will vanish in thin air, in thin air.
And you�ll just be another nut, so who�s gonna care that you�re down here?
I�ll reserve your seat right here next to me you�ll stay
Then you can be the next that they can Color Me Grey.

Bridge 1
Our walls are bright our hearts are dim
The streets are crowded, let us in
Don�t turn your head, don�t turn away
Don�t shut me out, Don�t Color Me Grey

It�s so scary, locked up in private hell, in private hell
And It�s so scary, but look how can you tell.

Iââ?¬â?¢m sitting here and trying to think just how my chips did fall ââ?¬â?? yeah-yeah

Bridge 1
Our walls are bright our hearts are dim
The streets are crowded, let us in
Don�t turn your head, don�t turn away
Don�t shut me out, Don�t Color Me Grey

I just want the key to turn and set me free
I just want to be, able to just be me again
I just want to be me again, I just want it all to end

Altro
Don�t Color Me Grey, Don�t Color Me Grey
How did I lose it all? How did my chips fall?
Don't Color Me Grey.
