Fields of Gray Lyrics

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

There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be bad 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

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

There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be bad 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

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

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 lift you
Calm your fears if you're afraid
We'll go walking
Across the fields of gray

Thoughts & Meanings

This song is about a father who's life is being changed by the birth of his son(s). at night..."I come by just to look at you" He is resolving to look at the world in a different way for their sakes and at the same time expressing hope that they come to see the world in "color" not black and white. He is also expressing gratitude for this new outlook on life - that there is "color" " Sometimes I see a narrow flash of light. I look at you and you show me the way." I can relate to these feelings - having kids will change your view of the world!
