      About "Songs In Red and Gray"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Songs In Red and Gray"

      The reproach in 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
      It's 19 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

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

      Was I the name you could never pronounce?
      Or did I even figure at all?
      All of this happened before she was born
      Did I shadow 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 gray 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
