Grateful Dead - Touch Of Grey mp3 album
Touch of Grey Lyrics. Must be getting early Clocks are running late Paint by number morning sky looks so phony Dawn is breaking everywhere Light a candle, curse the glare Draw the curtains I don't care cause it's alright. I will get by I will get by I will get by I will survive. I see you've got your fists out, say your piece and get out Guess I get the gist of it but it's alright Sorry that you feel that way The only thing there is to say Every silver lining's got a touch of grey. Despite their exceptional album sales (8 Gold albums and 4 platinum albums), The Grateful Dead had very little success with their singles. In an intervew with Rolling Stone, longtime Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter admitted that the songwriting process was cocaine-fueled. A friend brought over a hunk of very good cocaine. I stayed up all night.
