The enemy always fights the hardest when he knows we are closest to our victory- Joel Osteen

I love the sky
I love the ocean
I love his eyes
But not what I see in them

And I
Don’t know what to do
I’m so in love with you
I’ve nothing left to say
My favorite blue is just a shade of grey

I love those jeans
And my favorite pair of shoes
Flowers and aquamarines
I’ve got everything to lose

But I
Am trembling with fear
I’m screaming loud and clear
But you still turn away
My favorite blue is just a shade of grey

Why, why are you walking away
I know you hear me screaming out your name
Why, why won’t you turn around
Please, just make a sound
Don’t let me lose
My favorite shade of blue

'Cause I
Can feel my heart breaking in two
I just want to be with you
But I can’t make you stay
My favorite blue is just a shade of grey

I loved the sky
I loved the ocean
I loved his eyes...
But that blue was just another shade
Of grey

The author's comments:
I was feeling a little nostalgic over the loss of the deep relationship between my ex-boyfriend/bestfriend, who had the most stunning blue eyes ever, and myself, and it sort of came out. I want people to feel the same sort of loss and desperation that I felt while writing it. But whatever is felt, so long as its not entirely happy, is fine as well.
