Introducing The Gray Havens!

Just in case you may be in search of some good clean music, I here offer you the beauties of The Gray Havens. Not super well-known, but this is a Christian young couple who writes their own music, often being inspired by the works of C.S. Lewis or J.R.Tolkien. They have a folk-pop style and often their songs are telling a story that have a much deeper message. This song that I am sharing with you is one of my favorites (but all of them are my favorites. :) ), but hopefully as you listen and read the words you will be able to pick up the message in it. I love the last line! So enjoy and make this your new favorite musicians. ;)
 
 
 



 
 
The color-coded town,
They had one rule no grays allowed,
It was a great offense,
It brought no compliments,

A stranger to the town he came,
And met a girl that very few would say,
Is worth thinking of,
Still he fell in love,

And he brought her flowers every day,
And she loved them,
She loved him she'd never felt that way,
But they said hey those flowers, they are gray,
They can't stay, no, no, well, we'll let it slide,
But read our signs we don't like grays,

Then one day they saw her in a dress,
A gift from him it was gray and red,
It stopped them in their tracks,
Ooo, they knew it matched,

A revolution there was shortly found,
Inside that color-coded town,
Some happy, some enraged,
So they marched on over to the place where,

He brought her flowers every day,
And she loved them,
She loved him she'd never felt that way,
But they cried let's take him to his grave,
We've done told him once, but now he's done,

They cried, We told you stay away,
With that crazy color,
Turn around if you don't we'll break you,
And you don't have anyone to save you,

He said, She needs me to stay,
Cuz gray can take her sorrow,
So I will die tonight so she will know,
That gray will stay in the color-code,

For my love I will die you know,
But before I do let the record show,

That I brought her flowers every day,
And she loved them,
She loved me she'd never felt that way,
So if you feel you need some gray,
That's ok child, cuz you know you've just got to ask,
And I'll come back,

You know you've just got to ask,
And I'll come back, oh
You know you've just got to ask,
And I'll come back to give you grace

    1. I know! Aren't they great! One of my roommates randomly came across it last year I believe and then ever after that we have been hooked on it and have been playing their songs. Then just a few weeks ago they played at our church. ;)
