[LYRICS]
Fields Of Gray - Words and music by Bruce Hornsby (1993)

[INTRO]
[VERSE 1]
When the night lies so still Before I go to sleep
I come by, I come by Just to look at you
In the dim light I say That in my own small way
I will try, I will try To help you through

[CHORUS 1]
There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be sad scenes and bad dreams
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and lift you
As you hold on tight and sway
We'll go walking
Across the Fields Of Gray

[VERSE 2]
There's a place I can go When the world gets me down
When nothing, when nothing Goes quite right it seems
As I look there I know Fortune smiles on me so
But who knows, no one knows About tomorrow

[CHORUS 2]
There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be sad scenes and bad dreams
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and lift you
As you hold on tight and sway
We'll go walking
Across the Fields Of Gray

[BRIDGE]
When I was younger I saw things in black and white
Now all I see is a sad, hazy gray
Sometimes I see a narrow flash of light
Sometimes I look and you show me the way

[INSTRUMENTAL]

[CHORUS 3]
No matter what else happens
What the future will be
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and carry you
Calm your fears if you're afraid
We'll go walking
Across the Fields Of Gray
