Gray or Blue

by Jaymay

I feel so helpless now, my guitar is not around
and I’m struggling 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’m wondering why that is
are you too nervous to be lovers– friendships ruined with just one kiss
I watched you very closely and 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
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 tried to win my heart, but it’s taken . . . . . time

And 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 . . .
So go on, go on and take it, don’t fake it, …shake it

(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 from 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 turning away
Last night I watched you sing because a person has to try
And I walked home in the rain because a person can not lie
