"Shades Of Grey" as written by and Jones....
I and I am to blame,
I sit here in shame.
I threw you away again.

And I, I send you my best.
I try to lay this to rest,
When you were my everything.

Shades of Grey,
And please fade away.
And oh what if I sit in vain.

Hey, and I'll look away,
Pretend I'm okay.
I'm back on the road again.

And please, could it be true,
That I still love you,
And my loves unworthy.

Shades of Grey,
And please fade away.
And oh what if I sit in vain.

Are you listening to my words?
And I saw your smile pass me by,
And landed far from me.
And what does that mean?

Shades of Grey,
And please fade away.
Oh what if I sit in vain.

I and I ran away,
For I was afraid.
Afraid you'd be everything.

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song, even though it is quite depressing. I would never want to be in that position of missing someone that much after (what sounds like) messing up so badly.

    General Commentoh goodness.... this song relates to me in so many different ways.

    "sit here in shame.
    I threw you away again."

    been there, done that.
    we make mistakes... and we live with the consequences.
    sometimes you don't realize what you have.
    you take a chance. you go off in a completely new direction hoping to find something "better"-- but the thing is, you realize that what you had was the best thing you could have hope for. --but when you reach for it, you find that its gone. you've abandoned it.
    i'm guilty. guilty. guilty. of that.
    &living with the consequences... letting something slip through my fingers is the most painful thing. knowing that you had it but YOU risked it-- hurts the most. because when you want to blame someone else, you can only look in the mirror.

    General CommentI totally agree, it hit me so hard just now.

    I really do love this song, and I know what it's like to have to throw something away.
    The having to watch it prosper.

    This song is just so beautiful.

    my favorite part is:

    "I and I ran away, for I was afraid.
    Afraid you'd be everything."
