Shades Of Grey Lyrics - Billy Joel

Review The Song (3)



Some things were perfectly clear,
seen with the vision of youth
No doubts and nothing to fear,
I claimed the corner on truth
These days it's harder to say
I know what I'm fighting for
My faith is falling away
I'm not that sure anymore

Shades of grey wherever I go
The more I find out the less that I know
Black and white is how it should be
But shades of grey are the colors I see

Once there were trenches and walls
and one point of every view
Fight 'til the other man falls
Kill him before he kills you
sponsored links
These days the edges are blurred,
I'm old and tired of war
I hear the other man's words
I'm not that sure anymore

Shades of grey are all that I find
When I look to the enemy line
Black and white was so easy for me
But shades of grey are the colors I see

Now with the wisdom of years
I try to reason things out
And the only people I fear
are those who never have doubts
Save us all from arrogant men,
and all the causes they're for
I won't be righteous again
I'm not that sure anymore

Shades of grey are all that I find
when I look to the enemy line
There ain't no rainbows shining on me
Shades of grey are the colours I see

Shades of grey wherever I go
The more I find out the less that I know
There ain't no rainbows shining on me
Shades of grey are the colors I see

shades of war | Reviewer: tyler | 9/7/11

this song is really true when he says black and white were so easy for me i think he means before war he was sure about certain things but when you go to war youre not very sure about right and wrong you are just trying to survive



Should be compulsory listening | Reviewer: Bill McLoughlin | 11/28/10

Have often come back to listen to this - every time I make the mistake of watching a current affairs program or listening to politicians - no one under thirty should be able to avoid an examination on the philosophy put out here by Billy Joel - it should certainly be subject of a critical exam in high schools, arts, law and political science courses!!



A Wiser Billy Joel... | Reviewer: vanessa houk | 6/27/08

I love this song and I think the lyrics resonate truth for many things...war, poverty, death penalty and probably others that I am not thinking of.

Billy Joel always gives us lyrics we can live by.
