Ordinary Gray
Kent Agee

Standing at the cemetery gates she holds a sad bouquet of daisies
Much too tightly in her not quite trembling hand
Her raincoat is an ordinary gray except it's shining like it maybe
Made of something almost happy to be standing in the...

Shadows of the saints she can’t believe in
The echo’s of the prayers she never said
Dead angels cry cold tears of stone
That only leave her more alone
To walk around with heaven in her head

Watching through the ornamental bars she cannot hear the hallelujah
Spoken only because that’s what people do
A yellow taxi splashes her, she barely seems to notice
That her plain black shoes are melting and the red is showing through…

Through the dust she's trusted far too long to keep her
Safe from all the dreams she never fed
The whispered secrets left behind float off into an empty sky
And never see the heaven in her head

Oh the things that nobody knows
Oh the stories we tell til we cannot let them go

Looking up she sees a cross of crows and someone's radio is saying,
"You were waiting for this moment to be free"
Walking home she doesn't seem to know
That there are flowers bursting open in her footsteps where the concrete used to be
