I Live On Grey Street

I gave Aidan some kisses today and he wiped his cheeks afterward. I said to him "Aidan, don't wipe off mommy's kisses because it breaks my heart." So he smiled and asked "What if I told you that you were my bestest friend?" So I said... "Well then it would un-break my heart and it would be better again." Then he asked in a serious and curious tone..."But how do you fix a broken heart mom?" All I could say was "I wish I knew."

Oh look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She just goes stumbling through her memories
Staring out on to Grey Street.
She thinks, "Hey, how did I come to this?"
I dream myself a million times around the world
But I can't get out of this place.
Oh There's an lonliness inside her
And she'll do anything to fill it in
But all the colors mix together - to grey
And it breaks her heart
How she wishes it was different
She prays to God most every night
And though she knows well he doesn't listen
There's still a hope in her he might
She says "I pray! Oh but my prayers fall on deaf ears,
am I supposed to take it on myself?
To get out of this place? "
Oh There's an emptiness inside her
And she'd do anything to fill it in
And though it's red blood bleeding from her now
It feels like cold blue ice in her heart
She feels like kicking out all the windows
and setting fire to this life she would change
Everything about her
Using colors bold and bright
But all the colors mix together - to grey
And it breaks her heart
It breaks her heart
To grey
