Fade To Gray



I can't trade another day in the shade for a night on the town
all his whiskey and risky behavior is wearing me down
(what are you dreaming of?)
hell, a shack in the woods would be more than enough
(what are your dreaming of?)
this ain't no way to live or to try to find love
(slow down)
i want to live where the sunlight lights
(slow down)
feather-light on my face
(slow down)
i want to leave all this neon and vice
before the fire inside me dies or finally fades to gray (non-sequitur alert)
I had a car - it's still parked in the yard - i can't give it away
but i can walk to the bar and the market ain't far if i can bear the light of day
(what are you dreaming of?)
hell, a dollar to spare would be more than enough
(what are you dreaming of?)
this ain't no way to live or to try to find love
(slow down)
i want to live where the sunlight lights
(slow down)
feather-light on my face
(slow down)
i want to leave all this neon and vice
before the fire inside me dies or finally fades to gray
Oh no, don't let it fade to gray
oh no, don't let it fade to gray
oh no, don't let it fade to gray
oh no, don't let it fade to gray
Girls will maul you and promise to call you then run away
hell, i blew all my bread on some redhead, it turned out that she was a he anyway
(what are you dreaming of?
hell, a red-blooded girl would be more than enough
(what are you dreaming of?
this ain't no way to live or to try to find love
(slow down)
i want to live where the sunlight lights
(slow down)
feather-light on my face
(slow down)
i want to leave all this neon and vice
before the fire inside me dies or finally fades to gray
(well, what are you dreaming of?)
i've been tainted and tattered and tarnished enough
(what are you dreaming of?)
this ain't no way to live or to try to find love
(slow down)
i want to live where the sunlight lights
(slow down)
feather-light on my face
(slow down)
i want to leave all this neon and vice
before the fire inside me dies or finally fades to gray
