"Grey Sky Eyes" as written by and Barry Thomas Privett Terrell H. Clark....
Grey sky, always in your eye
Where is the girl behind the cloud?
Grey sky, always floating by
But I only peek when I'm allowed

You welcome me in
And your veil is so thin
But the mystery continues to grow
You say you must realize
That my grey sky eyes
Neither rain, nor they glow... now you know

So I'll try to not act so surprised
I'll feel my way, I'll underplay
All my curiosity and hide
All the questions in my skin

You welcome me in
And your veil is so thin
But the mystery continues to grow
You say you must realize
That my grey sky eyes
Neither rain, nor they glow... now you know
They neither rain nor they glow... now you know

Grey Sky, I think I changed my mind
I find no need to pretend
Grey Sky, would you allow me to be
So into you, my friend?

Could you welcome me in
With your veil that's so thin
As the the mystery continues to grow?
You say you must realize
That my grey sky eyes
Neither rain, nor they glow... now you know
They neither rain nor they glow... now you know
They neither rain nor they glow... now you know

    General CommentIt's basically talking about a boy that finds himself in a relationship with a girl that is really hard to read. She vaugly shows him her true colors but in a very suble way: "With your veil that's so thin" so he is constanly asking questions. But he is scared to ask them: "I'll feel my way, I'll underplay
    All my curiosity and hide
    All the questions in my skin"
    Because he either 1. likes the fact that she is a mystery, or:
    2. Is afraid.
    that is what I got out of it.

    General CommentI have to agree with secondhandsmoke, this is definitely about a guy who is in love with a girl who either doesn't really pay him much mind, is totally aloof, or may be interested in him but really doesn't know how to show it. Any way you see it, what is evident is that he is a bit lost with the lack of luster in their relationship. I tend to think it is the latter, but that is my interpretation of the song. I hope this helps.

    General CommentPerhaps the girl feels ordinary and is shy so she tells him that he must understand that behind her grey sky eyes it is neither raining nor glowing. He feels a strong liking toward her but underplays his curiosity towards the girl behind the cloud where she is comfortable. Then he decides to tell her truthfully how he feels and show her that he had underplayed his feelings. He definitely wants to penetrate her complacent resistance.

    General CommentGreat song. It reminds me of a girl who was really great and nice and funny but she always thought she wasn't worth much to the world so she went through life with a glass half empty outlook. I always think of her when I hear this song because she has grey sky eyes.
