about

Cloud Factory is the first full-length release from Grey Sky Symphony, a music project started by singer-songwriter, Dillon Hutyra. Plans for the album began towards the end of Dillon's high school career, when he wrote the songs "You're My Favorite Color" and "The Storm" for his old band, Forum. During his first year at college, he reformed his musical efforts into Grey Sky Symphony and began seriously working toward a full- length album. The entire album was recorded and produced with a home studio rig that grew as the project advanced. Tracks for the album were recorded everywhere from bedroom closets to a university recital hall.

Track Name: Cotton Candy Clouds
I need to turn my head around
I need to get up off the ground
I want to taste some of those
cotton candy clouds up in the air

I've got to stop wasting my time
I need to get outside the lines
you've got to look before you find,
but I'm already there

and it is killing me
how far we seem to be

well look up, look up the sky is changing
and come back, come back I'll be here waiting
and you can hold on, hold on, hold on to me
and I see, I see that you're still standing
well look now, look now our plane is landing
but you're the only light that I see

I need to know that I can breathe
that there's a heart inside of me
write me a song and I will sing
loud and crystal clear

I'm spinning round and round again
all of my colors slowly blend
this isn't how it's 'sposed to end
or is it my dear?

cos I can't tell a grey
from a black so far away
and you can't seem to stay
just give me one chance to say

well look up, look up the sky is changing
and come back, come back I'll be here waiting
and you can hold on, hold on, hold on to me
and I see, I see that you're still standing
well look now, look now our plane is landing
but you're the only light that I see

take my hand and we will fly
into the clouds up in the sky
we know the sun will light the way
I couldn't ask for a more perfect day
Track Name: Kaleidoscope
if I wrote you a song would you say I'm crazy?
and if I asked you to dance would you give me a maybe?
if I pulled down the sky, colored so blue
and gave it to you and gave it to you

so I stayed up all night with you on the phone
cos I'd rather be tired than be alone
and I close my eyes, your voice in my ear
that's all I wanted to hear, all I want to hear

now I cannot take my eyes off you
I try, I've done all that I can do
now I'm looking though a multi-colored view

if we open our eyes will we see more than black?
if we never say never will we ever collapse?
when I'm with you I cannot say no
I just want you to know, I just want you to know

that I cannot take my eyes off you
I try, I've done all that I can do
now I'm looking through a multi-colored view
now I'm looking through a multi-colored view

now I cannot take my eyes off you
I try, I've done all that I can do
and sometimes I cannot believe it's true
still I cannot take my eyes off you

now I'm looking through a multi-colored view
now I'm looking through a multi-colored view
now I'm looking through but all I see is you
Track Name: You're My Favorite Color
I am not an artist
all I can do is sing
and strum my fingers 'cross these old worn out guitar strings

but you've got a sense of color
that brightens up my songs
maybe what I'm doing is not so pointless after all

and please stay with me
I need some inspiration
living in grey is never really any fun

you see my life's a canvas
for everyone to view
I'm just so glad the person painting it is you

color my world
make it bright, I'm feeling lighter
when I'm standing by her
don't you know girl?
any color will do
and bring on the light
let it shine, I'm feeling brighter
when I'm standing by her
all day all night
any color will do
but my favorite color is you

brown is the color of your picture perfect eyes
red like the feeling you got me feeling inside
purple I know is your favorite hue
and blue's how I'm feeling when I'm without you

so come on
and please don't leave me hang'n
I'm strong
but my heart you've taken
and I need you
like the sky needs the sun
like a bullet needs a gun
like everybody needs someone

color my world
make it bright, I'm feeling lighter
when I'm standing by her
don't you know girl?
any color will do
and bring on the light
let it shine, I'm feeling brighter
when I'm standing by her
all day all night
any color will do
but my favorite color is you

I'm sick and tired of all of this plain black and white
color me with your love, help me make everything right
and make it right

and color my world
make it bright, I'm feeling lighter
when I'm standing by her
don't you know girl?
any color will do
and bring on the light
let it shine, I'm feeling brighter
when I'm standing by her
all day all night
any color will do
but my favorite color is you
Track Name: The Loser
I have nothing left to lose
you say that's no surprising news
and I know that the pain is just beginning
the fade out leaves my thoughts all spinning

Hold on, we need not say farewell
it hurts much more than you can tell
and I fight to keep my heart from breaking
the cold night leaves my body shaking

spin my head round and round
put me back at the start now
tell me I'm the one to blame
and I'm a loser at a winning game

Listen, the silence setting in
when will I see your face again?
uncertain, and time is simply stalling
it worsens and now I think I'm falling

I'm falling, I'm falling, I'm falling...

spin my head round and round
put me back at the start now
make believe we're still the same
but I"m a loser at a winning game

can someone tell me why
people tend to die
before they ever reach the grave
a broken heart can't mend
when you lose a friend
and watch them slowly fade away
to fade away

spin my head round and round
put me back at the start now
make believe we're still the same
but I'm a loser at a winning game

I'm a loser at a winning game
I'm a loser at a winning game
I'm a loser at a winning game
yes I'm a loser at a winning game
Track Name: Shiver
slow down a bit
I can't keep up with your pace
I feel like I've been hit
every time I see your face

let me know
if I should go

I cannot stand
to see you so cold
so take my hand
and I won't let go

and give me a sign
that it's all alright

and tell me tell me when the time comes will I know that it is here?
and if I'm wrong then pull the trigger
and lean in close because the night is cold my dear
and I can't have you shiver
oh no, oh oh

I can't go back (I can't go back)
I hate our goodbyes (I don't want to say goodbye)
draw me a map (draw me a map)
cos I'm lost in you eyes (I don't know where I am)

and give me a sign
that everything's alright

and tell me tell me when the time comes will I know that it is here?
and if I'm wrong then pull the trigger
and lean in close because the night is cold my dear
and I can't have you shiver
oh no, oh oh

and listen, listen to the sound of my heart beating
this icy chill's got me a quiver (I can't help but quiver)
but all I hear is what you whisper in my ear
you say "don't you shiver"
oh no, oh oh

oh oh
oh oh
Track Name: The Storm
throw me into the fray
show me a rainy day
cos all I know has turned to grey
I reach for you but you're slipping away

hey let the rain fall down from the sky
hey let the pain leave us all asking why
cos it's one wrong step and it's all lost time
so stay where you are just hold on to the night

when will it all run dry?
cos I still can't seem to fly
and I know that it's all in my head
but I can't seem to see what's real instead

hey let the rain fall down from the sky
hey let the pain leave us all asking why
cos it's one wrong step and it's all lost time
so stay where you are just hold on to the night

just hold on
just hold on
for now, for now
just hold on,
just hold on,
for now, for now
just hold on
just hold on

hey let the rain fall down from the sky
hey let the pain leave us all asking why
cos it's one wrong step and it's all lost time
so stay where you are and hold on to the night
Track Name: Alone
give me a beat so my heart won't feel so confused
my blood vessels need something telling them what to do
cos broken clocks only tell people lies
and broken people cannot bare the weight of time

oh oh
why'd you have to go?

I never dreamed a love song could torture my soul
but as I sing it's hard to retain control
cos in my head there's a room painted blue
and on the floor lie these photos of you

oh oh
why'd you have to go? (and leave me all)
oh oh
why'd you have to go? (and leave me all)
and leave me alone

"just give it time", that's what they all seem to say
but all my time seems to have floated away
yeah everything is all up in the air
it's you I need but you don't even care

oh oh
why'd you have to go? (and leave me all)
oh oh
why'd you have to go? (and leave me all)
and leave me alone

it's killing me
can't get you off my mind
I'm incomplete
sill waiting for some sign
to tell me what the hell am I supposed to do
cos while I'm standing here I am losing you

oh oh
why'd you have to go?
oh oh
why'd you have to go?
oh oh
why'd you have to go?
and leave me
why'd you leave me?
please don't leave me
alone
Track Name: Melt
remember all those nights when we sat in the rain
and you'd whisper my name, whisper my name
it's hard to find cos things never stay the same
everything will change, everything will change

but hold on tight and I'll never let you go
I just thought you should know, I thought you should know
I've got all this time but I've nowhere to go
let's just take it slow, let's just take it slow

and stay here for a while
because my dear you make me smile

and when you look at me
I melt away, I melt away
what can I say?
then it gets hard to breathe
never felt this way, never felt this way

I'll be the compass if you will be the map
and we'll find our way back, we'll find our way back
though every valley through every sidewalk crack
I'll keep you on track and you'll keep me on track

but let's stay here for a while
because my dear you make me smile

and when you look at me
I melt away, I melt away
what can I say?
then it gets hard to breathe
never felt this way, never felt this way
and when you're close to me
everything's okay, everything's okay
it's all in its right place
so stay with me
don't go away, don't go away

(awwwwww yeah)

and when you look at me
I melt away, I melt away
what can I say?
then it gets hard to breathe
never felt this way, never felt this way
and when you're close to me
everything's okay, everything's okay
well it's all in its right place
so stay with me
don't go away, don't go away
Track Name: Ash
I wanna talk one last time
and make believe inside my mind
that all that was will ever be
and I'll hold you so close me
so close to me

I wanna see you one last time
and try to read between the lines
figure why things got this way
figure how to make you stay

burn me down til all that's left is ash
I'll make no sound, I'll leave when the wind blows past
and you'll be fine leave me behind
I'll take the fall, I'll lose it all

I wanna try to start again
if all my wounds ever mend
it's better to have had and lost
but everything comes at a cost

burn me down til all that's left is ash (burning ash)
I'll make no sound, I'll leave when the wind blows past (wind blows past)
and you'll be fine leave me behind
I'll take the fall, I'll lose it all

I cannot stand, I cannot bare this pain
know things will never be the same
so let the flames surround and drown me out
and no one will care if they hear you scream and shout

oh
oh no
Track Name: Charter Bus Seat
all I need
is a head on my shoulder and a charter bus seat
the sound of the sea
and some music playing low as we pretend to sleep
and please don't let go
the water's much colder than I'd like to know
and oh oh oh
have you ever seen the sun set so slow?

well I'd like to think that this will never end
a year from now and you still will be my best friend
I'll write you songs but the words I cannot choose
that part is up to you

a walk on the beach
the waves try to take us but we're out of reach
and digging with our hands
we try to find the treasures buried under the sand
but there's nothing here
that shines quite the way that you do my dear
so let's sit still
and write things in the shore with a twig as our quill

well I'd like to think that this will never end
a year from now and you still will be my best friend
I'll write you songs but the words I cannot choose
that part is up to you
