Grey Skies

Written by: David Lowe

I woke up today, the skies they were quite grey
I knew right then it was to be a dreadful awful day
For those dull dark clouds ignored all the crowds
They looked at me only - then this they had to say

Your woman is leaving - you can't make her stay
The love of your life is moving away
The clouds had to give me the painful awful truth
Then they reminded me I'm no longer a youth

When I wake up tomorrow, if that is the case
The only thing that's guaranteed those tears on my face
Now I ignore the crowds, 'cause of those damned clouds
For they had to let me know I'd run my final race

My woman is leaving - I can't make her stay
The love of my life is moving away
The clouds had to give me the painful awful truth
Then they reminded me I'm no longer a youth
