By far the coolest version of this tune, both for the lyrics and 'Roi fucking going off in the outro.

7.19.00

Oh, just look at how she listens
She says nothing of what she thinks
She quietly listens and she muses
Staring out onto Grey Street
She thinks, "Hey
How did I come to this?
What is this meaningless life?
I found it up in love lies"

She remembers the love and old hands
And the tightly sewn raging ride
And the colors mix together
To grey
And breaks her heart

Oh the rain pours down all over
The flooding hasn't really stopped
It's as if oceans have come to loss
To take the dry world over cost
We think, "Wait
What if it deepens along?
Maybe there's a Noah here among us
Who can build a great big ark for all of us"

Oh but then the rocks in her heart fall
And she rode like no one prayers
Oh she wishes oh maybe it's over
But the rain just stole ahead
Oh man she rode around together
To grey
And breaks her heart

Oh there's a crazy man who's gone inside
"Take what you can from your dreams
Discard the wetness from your eyes
But it'll be over as soon as it sinks"
She said, "Please
There's a madman creeping outside my door
I live on the corner of Grey Street
It's at the end of the world"

Oh but the rain just kept on growing
Soon land would disappear
Oh just the last mountain peaks like islands
Out of everyone crowded here
Out on the rooftops we will scurry
And the motives they like
And all the colors mix together
To rain
To wake us up
To rain
To rake us all

Oh and alone the soon this daylight
When there's nothing left our well spent
Just a few last paddling survivors
While the road of the view for land
Oh my good sir we rode round (???)
And the dog rose up his head
What if this water doesn't leave us?
Won't know if it's a life
But all the colors mix together
To rain
To wake us up
And wake us up
And rain, yeah

and we might just see the light
when all the colors mix together

that's one of the best verses.. ever.

i haven't listened to that in a long time - brings back some good memories. as much as i disliked going to those stadium shows, being up in the first couple rows sure helped... plus i was lucky with some great sets. damn, different times back then...

and i love this part:

Oh there's a crazy man who's gone inside
"Take what you can from your dreams
Stole the wetness from your eyes
But it'll be over as soon as it seems"
She said, "Please

I have yet to redo those lyrics, haven't even looked at it. For all I know, they're junk like a lot of the stuff I've been redoing. I actually had to post an apology for the #40 lyrics that were up for 2.16.99 on there. They were attrocious. I did however do the Buffalo one from the 21st and there's some good rain lyrics in there too as I remember.

7-19-00 was my favorite show by far ever. i had such an awesome time at that show... it just poured the whole set. that JTR opener smoked. the harder it rained, the louder the crowd was. saw it from the 6th row. stadium shows are only fun from the front rows, but i think if you're up front they're even better than amphitheater shows because the sound's just as good from the first few rows and you have the volume of 50,000 roaring fans behind you. sometimes i'd turn around and it was so surreal. can't imagine what it looks like from being on stage.

anyway, 7-19-00 is a great set and at some point they really need to make it a Live Trax.

yeah but it also has True Reflections, Lie In Our Graves and a 12 minute Long Black Veil. Of the 65 or so 2000 shows, I'd put this about 30th on the list of Live Trax I'd want from the tour

That Long Black Veil is SOOO long....

dancetheham
12-04-2006, 10:44 AM
That was such a fun show. Not the best from 2000 (I'd rather see 12.13.00 released, for example), but it's still pretty great, aside from True Reflections and a too-long LBV (which was actually a very memorable version, but that's because of everything going on during the song, not because of the song itself... one of those "you had to be there" things).

Here's something I posted on another board about the Long Black Veil:
It was pouring down rain during the entire show, and they had this huge blue awning over the stage to keep it dry. Well the rain water was collecting in the thing because I guess it wasn't pulled quite tight enough. So in the middle of the concert, a crew member climbed way up the ladder on the side of the stage and started shaking the cover, which made all the rain water pour out right in front of the stage, and then he climbed down and went to the other side and did the same thing. It was like a waterfall in front of the stage for a few seconds. The Lovely Ladies had been out during the previous song, but they had left the stage even though the next song was Long Black Veil. So I guess while the band was waiting for them to come back out, Dave just played the intro chords for about two minutes, while the crew guy was dumping the water out. When the guy did this, Dave sang, "And it rained, and it raiiiined." It was just really neat. The Ladies finally came back out and they played a regular version of the song, but it's one I'll always remember.

Anyway, Rob: I'm pretty sure the lyrics for this Grey Street are about 95% accurate. I've spent quite a bit of time with them, and there are only a few spots that I'm just not sure about.

02-01-2007, 10:19 AM
yeahhh....i'm confused
no, the 3rd verse has been dropped..all there is now is..

Oh look at how she listens
she says nothing of what she thinks
she just goes stumbling through her memories
staring out on to Grey Street
she thinks, "hey,
how did I come to this?
I dream myself a thousand times around the world
but I can't get out of this place"

there's an emptiness inside her
and she'd do anything to fill it in
but all the colors mix together -- to grey
And it breaks her heart

how she wishes it was different
she prays to God most every night
and though she swears it doesn't listen
there's still hope in her it might
she says, "I pray,
but they fall on deaf ears
Am I supposed to take it on myself?
to get out of this place"

there's an emptiness inside her
and she'd do anything to fill it in
and though it's red blood bleeding from her now
it's more like cold blue ice in her heart
she feels like kicking out all the windows
and setting fire to this life
she could change everything about her
using colors bold and bright
but all the colors mix together
to grey
and it breaks her heart
it breaks her heart
to grey


i love that third verse though..i prefer the line before the one mentioned though

Take what you can from your dreams, make them as real as anything.

same thing on 6/17/01 at Foxboro. awful all day long - so much so that they were thinking of canceling the concert but then the rain stopped. it was nice because our seats were center about 10 rows back and people around us and in front of us didn't show up. fun show.

We were in the middle of the floor and standing in about 2 inches of water. beer cups floating by, people dancing in the rain singing every word to every song it was incredible. easily my most favorite dmb show i'll ever see.

YES on live trax nomination - second. this is my favorite DMB concert of all. my gf and i snuck into the 6th row, right up front, and in the middle of LBV when the crew climbed to the top of the stage tent to push water off the roof we got doused. it was warmer than 60 though, we wore light jackets but even soaked weren't cold at all... a classic rainy summer evening... just straight awesome. the JTR opener was so key, and the rest of the show delivered.

This was one of the first complete shows that I downloaded way back in the day (off cynosure or typicalsituations maybe?) I selected it pretty much at random based on the setlist and I nearly wore out the CDs that I burned. It fell out of favor mostly because the sound quality isn't there compared to newer recordings, but I still break it out for Grey Street every once in a while. Love this version. :upyours
