Jamie Cullum Lyrics


"Life Is Grey"

Only yesterday
I told myself that
Life is Grey
Didn’t make me sad
Made me feel human

Only yesterday
I told myself that
Love is Green
Greener than the trees
Growing in my bedroom

Made me want to lose myself
Lose myself
In a song about the sun
Or the many things
That I don’t understand

Like I did since
I was young
Made me want to open doors
Sleep on floors
In a world outside your doors
Watch a movie
Play some piano
Write a sonnet
Build an army
Let’s build an army
Now will you love me?
Let’s build an army

Only yesterday
I realised that tall, dark tomb
Punctuates the sky
A giant’s exclamation.
Shame on our beloved nation
The codes we send as
Ash into the sky
Oh sorrow cure me
From tiny glories
Now dig for beauty
And build an army
Let’s build an army
Now will you love me?
Then build an army

The truth is life is gray
The truth is times are strange
The truth is I’m ok
And you’re beautiful

The truth is life is gray
The truth is times are strange
The truth is I’m ok
And you’re beautiful
And you’re beautiful
And you’re beautiful
And you’re beautiful
