David Gray

David Gray’s lyrics touch my heart. Very much so.

turn out the light
and the dark sucks on the embers of the fire
that smoulders in the night
tumbling boulders of desire
rolling out the shadows of me
turn out the light

– The Light

the hail storm tumbles
the rail line rumbles
you lie on the floor with me
come closer my love
I’m badly in need
of an afternoon’s debauchery

– Debauchery

ice in the wind
but a fire in the embers
of my heart
as darkness falls
in a candlelit room

and the mystery of love
it just keeps growing
the more my heart reveals

– The Mystery of Love

That’s Life

IT IS … UNFAIR.
“That’s life, master.”
BUT I’M NOT.
“I meant this is how it’s supposed to go, master,” said Albert.
NO. YOU MEAN THIS IS HOW IT GOES.

Forever

- DON’T WORRY, IT WON’T BE FOREVER.
- Good.
- IT MAY SEEM LIKE FOREVER.

Arms of Snow

morning
sit in the morning sun
evening
watching the shadow come
through the bright streets of london
i feel the rain
open my eyes as i wonder
at the spell that i’m under
magdalena
since you came along

meet me with your arms of snow and
meet me with your mouth undone
i’m burning up from head to toe
magdalena, when you’re gone

– David Gray, Magdalena
