Hornsby, Bruce - Fields Of Gray Lyrics




When the night lies so still
Before I go to sleep
I come by, I come by
Just to look at you
In the dim light I say
That in my own small way
I will try, I will try
To help you through

There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be sad scenes and bad dreams
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and lift you
As you hold on tight and sway
We'll go walking
Across the fields of gray

There's a place I can go
When the world gets me down
When nothing, when nothing
Goes quite right it seems
As I look there I know
Fortune smiles on me so
But who knows, no one knows
About tomorrow

There'll be blue skies falling
There'll be sad scenes and bad dreams
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and lift you
As you hold on tight and sway
We'll go walking
Across the fields of gray

When I was younger I saw things in black and white
Now all I see is a sad, hazy gray
Sometimes I see a narrow flash of light
Sometimes I look and you show me the way

No matter what else happens
What the future will be
In a world so uncertain
Through the clouds it's hard to see
I will grab you and carry you
Calm your fears if you're afraid
We'll go walking
Across the fields of gray

    Hi Bruce! I am so honored to have your son, Russell, play a Supporting Character this September in my film, "Denial". I met you personally back in 2004 in Charlotte, NC. I can still remember this song playing on the radio when I was a young rookie police officer and younger actor. :)

  3. Edward Amaral

    Very beautiful song and artist , perfect song for my kids, Dad loves you very much and promise to help you through. I love you both Arianna & Ethan ❤️

  4. Lee Collins

    So serene and beautiful!!

  5. J Shepard

    Bruce wrote this one for his boys.

  6. Edgardo Gregorini

    The " Redemption song" of Bruce Hornsbey. Beautiful. Renember 1993

  7. John Feliu

    My daughter....I granted her this song...Miss Becky.She turned out to be a fine woman. I'm thinkin it was Br uce and the Range

  8. Linda Easley

    Not one of his bigger known hits , but it was my favorite

  9. Marian Jean

    I had 7 aunts and 3 uncles who were my Mom's brothers and sisters. Their family was from the Sugarlands in the Great Smoky Mountains and they moved just before the National Park Service took over. They moved to an area called the Glades in the Gatlinburg area in Tennessee. This song reminds me so much of them and the people who had to leave the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains which included Cades Cove. I also had a cousin who was an avid trail hiker and hiker guide. He was known as the 'Jedi'. He recently lost his battle with brain cancer this year. So many people loved him because as they would hike, he would bring some nostalgia and interesting history into the conversation about the families who lived in the Great Smoky Mountains. This song reminds me so much of Mike Maples. RIP (03-05-2019). When I go walking the fields of gray, I think of you.

  10. SebbeF

    I adore the art work for this.

    Best song I’ve ever heard by Bruce Hornsby. This same song is also featured on his CD entitled greatest radio hits which I happen to have. Imagine making up your very own slow dance to this song or having a special cheering team or squad for your favorite sports team like the Saint Louis blues for instance doing their own fun slow style of dance choreography to this song at a sporting event during a tv break or something at the sports venue.

    When the night lies so still
    Before I go to sleep
    I come by, I come by
    Just to look at you
    In the dim light I say
    That in my own small way
    I will try, I will try
    To help you through

    There'll be blue skies falling
    There'll be sad scenes and bad dreams
    In a world so uncertain
    Through the clouds it's hard to see
    I will grab you and lift you
    As you hold on tight and sway
    We'll go walking
    Walk across the fields of gray

    There's a place I can go
    When the world gets me down
    When nothing, when nothing
    Goes quite right it seems
    As I look there I know
    Fortune smiles on me so
    But who knows, no one knows
    About tomorrow

    There'll be blue skies falling
    There'll be good scenes and bad dreams
    In a world so uncertain
    Through the clouds it's hard to see
    I will grab you and lift you
    As you hold on tight and sway
    We'll go walking
    Walk across the fields of gray

    When I was younger I saw things in black and white
    Now all I see is a sad, hazy gray
    Sometimes I see a narrow flash of light
    Sometimes I look and you show me the way

    No matter what else happens
    What the future will be
    In a world so uncertain
    Through the clouds it's hard to see
    I will grab you and carry you
    Calm your fears if you're afraid
    We'll go walking
    Walk across the fields of gray
    Fields of gray
    We'll go walking...

    Golden hour drive thru rolling countryside.black ribbon road snakes ahead.bruce comes on radio,tears undoubtedly follow.awsome!whats around the bend?

  16. paul hoffman

    I spent time with my mom, and this song really brings back that memory it was a hike in Tennessee.

  17. Ikaika Maleko

    This is a song for my boys. My sons. It’s a song about how it feels bringing these kids up into this world of uncertainty, which is the fields of gray. As you get older, you realize I grew up as this cocky-assed kid, everything was black and white. As you get older you realize that it’s not so simple, that it’s mostly gray. And so trying to guide your boys through that is a daunting proposition for me, and it’s a song about love for your kids, and your uncertainty about hoping you can do the best for them.”Bruce Hornsby (59)

    Wow spot on.

  18. wtf richard

    Joshua D.E. Johnson

    +Jack Zullo it's a bit basic than the Crosby version, which has more instrumentation, but it's still just as good 😊
