Into the Grey

from by Brian McGrath



I see you every night
A raven with green eyes
A stranger once my wife
From another life

You sing a somber song
But you know not what you've done
From two to one to none
Away you fly

So long ago
Into the grey, alone
Two lost souls against the storm

A dreary summer morn
The ocean’s grey sea storm
You look to be reborn
Beneath the waves

For a moment you let go
And leave me all alone
A body with no soul
Lifeless and cold

So long ago
Into the grey, alone
Two lost souls against the storm

You used to lean right up against me
When you were no longer strong
But when I needed you to save me
You just stood and watched me drown

I still see you every night
In dark corners of my mind
Your shadow moves
In every song I write

A broken man, I bleed
As I stand before the sea
And wonder just how deep
Before it stings

So long ago
Into the grey alone
Two lost souls against the storm
