This song is dedicated to a place, a person and a time that changed me. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be quite the confident, focused, fit, healthy and well-rounded individual that some of you know and/or love now without having first squandered something I deserved but wasn't ready for. Life's short and beautiful, like my mum.
i was half asleep the night i met you on grays inn road
an evening in november, everything was just about to change
in that watercolour evening dress, glistening like a diamond in the darkness
close enough to whisper; you were still a million miles away
oh, come and give me one more try
just a chance to put the wrong things right
for a day or even just one night...
oh, come and see me one more time
won't you tell me what's been on your mind
let me show you what you left behind
come on... give me one more try
i accidentally told you that i loved you, on grays inn road
a lapse of concentration or was it what i really meant to say?
oh, riding on the moving stairs, you told me that you wouldn't wanna "be that girl"
hand in hand together; you were still a million miles away
you were waiting for me to make my move
to pick you up and sweep you away
i was worn out and tired from moving so fast
but things are very different today
now i can't help but think about you walking up to grays inn road
in the daylight it's nothing like the place where you used to stay
oh, when i tried to reach you, i didn't get an answer
i had flown across an ocean; you were still a million miles away
