Shades of grey

Night fell and lamps lit all across the town
Luminous colours just fade into brown
Memories fade at the end of the day
Fade into shades of grey

Through dark streets we wandered
Passing the poor
People slumped up against every door
We've nothing to give them and nothing to say
For we are just shades of grey

Colour returned for a moment or so
Could have made my move but not me, I'm too slow
You are my life, that's a fact we all know
You made me feel high, but now I am low
Low with shades of grey

Myriads of colours we both longed to see
All of those colours lost to memory
That deep red sunset is so far away
But no longer shades of grey
