    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 wants it
    But it might remind him of when,
    he aimed for the bulls eye and
    hit it 9 times out of 10.
    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.
    Well I thought nothing of it, but it
    still haunts him like a ghost
    With all eyes upon him, except
    two that matter the most.

    CHORUS

    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

    CHORUS

    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 a
    loud 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.
