  1. Fade To Grey

From the album LOVED ONES

In cart Not available Out of stock

This song somewhat speaks for itself. We have all felt "separation" from loved ones whether it was a disagreement, or miscommunication. My journey in this experience has taught me that there is life after separation and even relief when being together might be more difficult. I also have learned that the pain of separation can come from a resistance to letting go of dreams that include the others we miss. This is the raw-est I have ever been. Once I had worked through it, I wanted to toss the song as it had "done its work" for my healing. When I consulted one of my mentors about leaving this song off the album, she said, "This is like a painting that reflects the human experience and all its colors."

FADE TO GREY ©2012 Lezlee Monroe
separation
YOU GOT ME IT’S WORKIN’
THE PUNISHMENT IT’S HURTIN’
THE COLORS IN PLAY
ARE BLACK AND WHITE I HAVE NO SAY
I can’t believe it’s happened
You closed and locked the door
It broke my heart to learn
That I can’t be near you anymore
I sink in shame and wear the blame
So “unacceptable”
Permission gone for holdin’ on
But I don’t want to let you go
YOU GOT ME I’M GUESSIN’
WHAT WILL BE THE NEXT BIG LESSON
THE COLORS SO CLEAN
ARE BLACK AND WHITE NO IN… BETWEEN
I think about the good times
When laughter was the norm
Now it seems you find your peace of mind
While I face the silent storm
I’ll do your way what can I say
That doesn’t cross the line?
I love you so I’ll turn and go
And leave the rest to time
YOU GOT ME (ooh) YOU GOT ME (ooh)
I MISS YOU I’M YEARNING
BUT I BELIEVE WORLD KEEPS TURNING
AND MAYBE SOMEDAY
OUR BLACK AND WHITE COULD FADE
TO GREY (hey ooh) TO GREY
