"Grey Streets" as written by and Lawrence Hayward....
grey streets and streets of grey
patrolled by knights from the invading day
closing eyelids stutter and tumble and turn away
makeshift memories they collide for another stay

I was attracted to you because the forces were so blind
and you were attracted to me
because my face smiled down from a wall
and you said I looked kind
well hello it's me again

I just called around to see my friend
'cause when I'm talking to you can't you see that the world is aglow
you're so semi-precious about life and you won't let your feelings show
I was a photograph
I was a picture on display

you were so negative because once I owned the world
but I gave it away
I am here and you are there
we are near so why should we care

you almost wish you werw dying it would be an excuse to really live
I sometimes wonder why 'cause you've got nothing left to give

and I was attracted to you
because the forces were so blind
and you were attracted to me
because my face smiled down from a wall
and you said I looked kind
