"Grey Blue Eyes" as written by Stephen Harris, Dave Matthews and Trey Anastasio....
I feel for the light
Your glory was lost that night
And no mind can't get me right
And now I'm praying that you'll find me out
Stone, stone has pulled me down
But my faith has got me bound to your grey blue eyes
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

Don't forget my broken heart
You remember it from the start
You made it and it's all a part
Of your grey blue eyes
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

You're gone and I know I'm dead
I've lost my way
Can't find me in your gray blue eyes
Grey blue eyes
Grey blue eyes
Grey blue eyes

    General Comment1st and 2nd person lyrics. The devil is referring to himself "I fade from the light" and dave or the "other" person is speaking for himself, "Your glory was lost that night."

    General Commentit may be about losing a lover, i'm not sure.
    "And no mind can't get me right
    And now I'm praying that you'll find me out
    Stone, stone has pulled me down "
    this part reminds me of someone who is hiding somthing, maybe its about losing a lover due to hidden things, secrets. maybe he was scared to show the truth (praying to be found out) but he wants her to know anyway. idk i initially loved this song because i have grey blue eyes and i never heard a song about grey blue eyes before...but i think its obviously much deeper :)

    General CommentThis song seems to be talking about God. God is the light and people THINK that his glory can be lost, when things become desperate. He is commanding who ever betrayed him to remember the pain of the betrayal; people do this all the time to God. They don't give credit where it is due and blame unjustly. But knowing Dave's style, or thinking that I do, it seems more likely that he is talking about forsaken love and blaming the woman. Beautiful song no less. Some Devil is not nearly as happy as previous CDs.

    General CommentI think this song like Trouble is Dave Matthews asking for Gods' grace. I think it is about his alienation from God because of his sisters murder. You can make this assumption because he says"stone, stone as pulled me down". The song: The Stone is about his sisters murder and the stone is her gravestone which has alienated him. This song like most of the songs on the album are especially religious, this song is of course followed by Save Me.

    General CommentI think it's a pure and simple love song...she captured his heart, then broke it. Yet he finds solace in her eyes.

    Obviously, it's one of my favorites. :-)

    (And I have grey-blue eyes, but that's beside the point.)

    General Commentcould also be about the death of someone very close to you. the lyrics that makes me think this is:
    "I feel for the light
    Your glory was lost that night"
