Clouds roll in and the air blows clean
Balance of gunmetal gray
And emerald green
Clouds roll in just like every spring
But somehow the ease of familiar
Doesn’t offer anything

I’m so sorry
My heart breaks for you

To the north for a change of scene
Balance of gunmetal gray
And emerald green
To the north, now the years have flown
Still not enough time to prepare you
Even if you could have known

I’m so sorry
My heart breaks for you

Well, sympathy’s no solution
Regret isn’t restitution
Cold comfort’s no contribution
But they’re all I have to give

Such is life:  jagged velveteen
Balance of gunmetal gray
And emerald green
Such is life; so easy to say
But even the best of intentions
Will not will the worst away

I’m so sorry
My heart breaks for you
