Gray or Blue

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'm wondering 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.

Don't second-guess your feelings, you were right from the start!
And I notice she's your lover, but she's nowhere near your heart...
I'm with another boy; he's asleep, I'm wide awake,
And he tried to win my heart, but it's taken...
This city is for strangers, like the sky is for the stars,
And I think it's very dangerous if we do not take what's ours!

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