Gray or Blue

I feel so helpless now, my guitar is not around
And I'm strugglin with the xylophone to make these feelings sound
And I'm remembering you singing and bringing you to life
It's raining out the window and today it looks like night

You haven't written to me in a week---I wonder why that is
Are you too nervous to be lovers, friendships ruined with just one kiss?
I watched you very closely I saw you look away,
Your eyes are either gray or blue I'm never close enough to say...

But your sweatshirt says it all with the hood over your face,
And I can't keep staring at your mouth without wondering how it tastes,
I'm with another boy; he's asleep, I'm wide awake--
And he tries to win my heart, but it's taken---time.

I know the shape of your hands because I watch them when you talk,
And I know the shape of your body 'cause I watch it when you walk,
And I want to know it all, but I'm giving you the lead!

Charming, crazy eyes have you,
Are they gray or blue?
I won't make the move,
You must make the move,
If you make the move,
I will then approve,
If you do not move,
We will surely lose...

Don't second-guess your feelings, you were right form the start,
And I notice she's your lover, but she's nowhere near your heart--
This city is for strangers, like the sky is for the stars
But I think it's very dangerous if we do not take what's ours.

And I'm winning you with words because I have no other way,
I want to look into your face without your eyes turnin' away.
Last night I watched you sleep, because a person has to try--
And I walked home in the rain because a person cannot lie...

JAYMAY, Gray or Blue
