B-Sides

Rainy Greys and Blues
Words and music by Roddy Frame

Appears on CD1 of the "Reason for Living" single.


You need no introduction
to great works and bright lights,
You need the resurrection
of good deeds and brilliance,
All your inspirations,
the sleepy spars and stations,
and far-flung destinations
have delivered you here

Your rainy days have seen you
ruthless and reeling,
And all your worldly hindsight
can't bring back good feelings
You say you're feeling lonely,
filled up full of nothing,
It could be that you're only
ready to receive

So here you are,
the good news and the bad news,
Everything you've ever wished for
can be yours forever,
I wish I could be you
and you could walk a while in my shoes,
The love you've given me would free you
and wash away your rainy greys and blues

There's a sense of something
Unfinished 'bout this day
Even as the stars light
the limits of the sun's rays,
A train of restless headlights
goes inchin' through the twilight
I bet you wish that you were with them,
breaking out for home

But here you are,
you break it, you buy it,
You gotta say you'll stay and try it
you've nothing to lose,
I wish I could be you
and you could walk a while in my shoes
The love you've given me would free you
and wash away your rainy greys and blues
