​The Beauty Of Gray

This song is by Live and appears on the album Mental Jewelry (1991).

If I told you he was your brother we could reminisce
Then you would go about your day
If I said you ought to give him some of your water
You'd shake your canteen and walk away

The perception that divides you from him is a lie
For some reason you never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive I say the colors must be swirled
And I believe that maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
The beauty of gray

If I told you she was your mother
We could analyze the situation and be gone
If I said you ought to give her some of your water
Your eyes would light up like the dawn

The perception that divides you from her is a lie
For some reason you never asked why
This is not a black and white world
You can't afford to believe in your side

This is not a black and white world
To be alive I say the colors must be swirled
And I believe that maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
Yes we all will get to appreciate
The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)
The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)

(Vocal improv)

Look into your eyes
No daylight
New day now

It's not a black and white world
To be alive I say the colors must be swirled
And I believe that maybe today
We will appreciate
The beauty of gray

This is not a black and white world
To be alive I say the colors must be swirled
And I believe that maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
Yes we all will get to appreciate

The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)
The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)

The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)
The beauty of gray
The beauty of gray (now)

The beauty of gray
(The beauty of gray)
