Songs in Red and Gray Songtext

The reproach on your daughter's most beautiful face
Made me wonder just how she could know
Of that something that happened between you and me
So much more than a long time ago

Her mother, I can see, lives within her still
'Cause she looked at me with her eyes
Though I had only just met her right then
I feel that she peeled back my guilty disguise

Did I break the thread or did you break the thread
Well at this point we could ask who cares
As for the promises broken and frayed
Well it's nighteen years late for repairs

The grey pewter vase held the deep red rose
One piece of coral shone white
By the brass candlestick near your red velvet coat
Is everything I can recall of one night

ooooh... ooooh...
ooooh... ooooh...

Would you please tell me why I remember these things
After all of this time, I don't know
I must have left all these feelings inside
'Cause that year I had no courage to show

Was I the name you could never pronounce
Did I even figure at all
All of this happened before she was born
Did I shadow all her young pencil marks on the wall

Still I am sure I was only but one
Of a number who darkened that door
Of your home and your hearth and your family and wife
Who'd been darkened so often before

Oh the red leaf looks to the hard grey stone
To each other they know what they mean
Somewhere their future is still yet to come
In ways that are yet as of now unforeseen

ooooh... ooooh...
ooooh... ooooh...
