“Gray or Blue” 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 bringin’ 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
Friendship’s 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

But your sweatshirt says it all
With the hood over your face
I can’t keep starin’ at your mouth
Without wonderin’ 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

I know the shape of your hands
Because I watch ’em 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

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’d love 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
