Bright Grey Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

She says that he's pouring fuel on the fire
He turns around and calls her a liar
She says I'm trying to get to a higher plan
Someone around here's sane, God only knows if it's you or me

He says that she's jealous just like a female
She says I caught you, I went through your e-mail
He says it's getting so hard just to be male
Now somebody tell me how, God only knows why we're enemies

Hey, why doesn't someone say
This dull black and white should fall away
Please tell me it's not just me
That can't wait until we're all bright grey
Bright grey

She packs her baggage and goes home to mother
He says go on 'cos he's sick of being smothered
She says I'm saving revenge for another day
How did it get this way? God only knows how it used to be

Hey, why doesn't someone say
This dull black and white should fall away
Please tell me it's not just me
That can't wait until we're all bright grey
Bright grey, bright grey

Hey, why doesn't someone say
This dull black and white should fall away
Please tell me it's not just me
That can't wait until we're all bright grey

Hey, why doesn't someone say
This dull black and white should fall away
Please tell me it's not just me
That can't wait until we're all bright grey
Bright grey
