[Verse 1]

Oh look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She just goes stumbling through her memories
Staring out on to Grey Street

She thinks, Hey,
How did I come to this?
I dream myself a thousand times around the world,
But I can't get out of this place


[Chorus]

           Bm          A
There's an emptiness inside her
             D/F#                 G
And she'd do anything to fill it in
            Bm            A
But all the colors mix together - to grey 
(Intro/Verse Chords)
And it breaks her heart 
(Intro/Verse Chords)


[Verse 2]

How she wishes it was different
She prays to God most every night
And though she swears he doesn't listen
There's still a hope in her he might

She says, I pray
But they fall on deaf ears,
Am I supposed to take it all myself?
To get out of this place


[Chorus]

There's loneliness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
It feels like cold blue ice in her heart
When all the colors mix together - to grey [intro]
And it breaks her heart


[Verse 3]

There's a stranger speaks outside her door
Says take what you can from your dreams
Make them as real as anything
It'd take the work out of the courage

But she says, Please
There's a crazy man that's creeping outside my door,
I live on the corner of Grey Street, and the end of the world
 

[Chorus]

There's an emptiness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
It's more like cold blue ice in her heart
She feels like kicking out all the windows
And setting fire to this life
She could change everything about her using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together - to grey [intro]
And it breaks her heart
It breaks her heart
To grey


[Outro]

(Intro/Verse Chords)

Addition -
I transcribed this from the "Busted Stuff" album - I know that there are many other versions. This is actually quite an easy/simple song - remember to work on your timing - as with many Dave Matthews songs - it helps to disconnect your head from what you're playing and what you're singing - doing this will make life so much easier - Ian

I think the chorus got jumbled by UG when I submitted
it (I don't know what happened). This is the actual
fingering I have, and thought I submitted.
