Gray Love Song

Written By: Iris Roberts

Gray Love Song

A boy from nowhere really says he’s goin back home
Bedside empty bottles, losin tickets and racing forms
Life stories of horses who have long since left the gate
Headin home, their noses hit the wire a little to late

An empty packet of cigarettes on the passenger seat
and a modern day drifter song
Since you left here I tossed a bag
of old Animal Crackers
With all the elephants gone

Don’t know how you do it
You been runnin for too long
I don’t know how you do it
Every goodbye ain’t gone

A sweet grown child
with whiskey breath
And sad memories that run deep and wild
like those rip tides that pull grown men under
and bury them at sea
and bury them at sea

I went my way
You just went wrong
And left me in an empty world
To write a Gray love song
And those rip tides that pull me under
Well they bury me at sea
They bury me at sea

Don’t know how you do it
You’ve been runnin for too long
I don’t know how you do it
Every goodbye ain’t gone

No, I don’t know how you do it
I don’t know how you do it
Every goodbye ain’t gone.
