[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

[OUTRO]
