Nickel Creek - Green And Gray lyrics

I'm in a room full of people hanging on one person's breath
We would all vote him most likely to be loved to death
I hope he still want it but it might remind him of when
He aimed for the bulls eye and hit it nine times out of ten
That one time his hand slipped and I saw the dart sail away
I don't know where it landed but I'm guessing between green and gray
I thought nothing of it but it still haunts him like a ghost
With all eyes upon him except two that matter the most

He says
Green is the color that everyone sees all around me
Gray is the color I see around her she's just a blur

The more the crowd cheers the less I can hear and they don't really care what I play
It might be for her but for now it's between green and gray

We payed and we cheered now we're gone and to us that feels right
But for him everyone of those evenings turns into a night
With another hotel room where he lays awake to pretend
That he's doing fine with is notebook and Discman for friends

He says
Green is the color that everyone sees all around me
Gray is the color I see around her she's just a blur

Night after night what I hear what I write fills the room and my head starts to sway
It might be for her but for now it's between green and gray

"I want you to love me" he whispers unable to speak
And he wonders aloud why feelings so strong make the body so weak
Then he awoke now he's scared to death somebody heard
If it was you and you know her please don't say a word
