Grey Lyrics - Barlow Girl

Review The Song (9)



Grey's my favorite color
Black and white has never been my thing
I'll take my drink lukewarm now
Hot and cold is not the thing for me yeah

Absolutes are hidden
I've buried my convictions

[Chorus:]
I cannot be blind no more
Numb to what I'm living for
Help me stop this compromise that justifies these lies
I need Your passion in this life oh whoa
in this life oh whoa

I don't want to impose
Who really needs to know what I believe
Cause no one likes rockin' boats
And who would care to see the way I see

Absolutes are hidden
I've buried my convictions

[Chorus:]
I cannot be blind no more
Numb to what I'm living for
Help me stop this compromise that justifies these lies
I need Your passion in this life oh whoa
in this life

So give me the fire, yeah
God give me Your fire
And raise this life higher yeah

[Chorus:]
I cannot be blind no more
Numb to what I'm living for
Help me stop this compromise that justifies these lies
I cannot be blind no more
Numb to what I'm living for
Help me stop this compromise that justifies these lies
I need your passion in this life oh whoa
in this life

Grey's my favorite color, yeah

J. Posey is RIGHT!! The meaning of this song is found in scripture.. Its about being lukewarm.. For those of you who want to learn about what being lukewarm means.. I suggest the book "Crazy Love" by francis chan.. its an amazing book that is helping people understand what TRUE Christianity look like. God Bless you all!



Wow... | Reviewer: J. Posey | 11/3/08

Uummm... wow. I can't believe some people have totally missed what this song is saying. At least some have gotten it. Look at what is *really* being said... Look at what the reviewer JERMIAH GRIFFIN said (not that he's the only one that got it). Watch the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f07JeOGqV0g

The song is about NOT being grey... It's based on Scripture: "I know what you do, that you are not hot or cold. I wish that you were hot or cold! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth." Revelation 3:16

Listen to Barlow Girl... the girls behind the band. They are on FIRE for Jesus! They're genuine Christians... not fakes... and that is what this song is about... about not being fake and not being a fence-sitter, but being HOT and ON FIRE for Jesus!

I love this song I'm afraid to talk to my nonchristian friends about Christ and his love. I can't compromise their belifs with mine because I'm scared of what they might think. this song is a major comfort.



More than just another song | Reviewer: Michelle | 8/28/07

I myself am christen but I don't thin this song is just about religion. It's a song about realizing that the world is not just one way or another, in other words black and white, and coming to accept it. She does call on God for help, but there is more to the song than just that. She feels her vision is clouded and finds herself confused. She understands that it is not the right way to be, asking for God's fire to help her through but knows that she can't impose on other people to think in the way she does.



this song shows she is realizing her compromises! | Reviewer: stephanie | 8/3/07

I've read a few reviews above, but I don't think the song is saying "lukewarmness" is positive at all...
she is realizing how because of all the influences around her she has lead a life of compromise and she desperately needs the Lord's help to not live "numb" to her convictions, and her heart be hardened by sin.. She is crying out for His help.. which is what we all need in this grey world we live in! I think it hits right where a lot of people live!



I just believe | Reviewer: andrea Rios | 8/2/07

Hello I really like the message of this song, what the group tried to say is " Don´t be warm, you need jesus in your life to keep your convictions and tell the world the hole truth"

I think that this is the chance of cold people to realize what they are doing

bless you!



It's really very simple | Reviewer: Sheli | 7/12/07

It's called repentance. The lyrics show how she is recognizing sin in her life, realizing that she needs to change her way of thinking and repenting before the Lord, asking Him to renew her mind through the Holy Ghost.



SEEMS TO ME | Reviewer: JERMIAH GRIFFIN | 7/3/07

Seems to me that Barlow Girl isn't saying that the lukewarmness of her thought is a possitive thing. If you notice the way the song flows, you'll see that she says " I've buried my convictions". No way she is saying that this is a good thing. Later she talks about being numb and blind and needing God's fire. Her numbness is a direct affect of her lukewarmness.



Is "Grey" scriptural? | Reviewer: Barry Simmons | 6/5/07

I am not against CCM, but are lyrics like these scriptural? The following verse shows how God would feel about such lyrics. "So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth." (Rev. 3:16)
