Green Pastures

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER! A SAYING WE RECALL
BUT IS IT REALLY GREENER THERE OR DIFFERENT AT ALL

IT SEEMS THAT MOSTLY ALL THE TIME THE PROBLEMS THAT WE LEAVE
MYSTERIOUSLY SEEM TO REAPPEAR IN NEW RELATIONSHIPS WE WEAVE

THE CHANGE MUST BE WITHIN OURSELVES WE SEEM TO BLAME THE OTHER
WE’RE SURE THAT ALL IS GONNA CHANGE WHEN WE GET ANOTHER

OH THAT GREENER GRASS YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR YOU’LL NEVER FIND, I’M SURE
UNLESS YOU START WITHIN YOUR HEART YOU’LL BE SEARCHING EVERMORE

GRASS NEEDS TO BE WATERED EVERYDAY AND TO BE SOFTLY SPOKEN TO
GRASS NEEDS THE SUN NOT JUST THE RAIN TO MAKE THAT GREEN SHINE THROUGH

GRASS ALSO NEEDS A LOT OF LOVE TO MAKE IT GROW REAL TALL
AND SHOULD YOU NEGLECT ANYONE OF THESE IT WILL NOT GROW AT ALL

SO BEFORE YOU SEARCH FOR GREENER GRASS STOP AND TAKE A GLANCE
OF THE GREEN GRASS GOD HAS BLESSED YOU WITH THAT YOU MAY WANT TO GIVE THAT CHANCE

SOMETIMES WE MOVE TOO HASTELY AND THEN TRY TO RECOVER
THE LOVES WE LEFT TORN ALL APART AND BY THEN THEY HAVE ANOTHER

SO GO AHEAD AND GIVE THAT CHANCE I’M SURE YOU’LL BE SURPRISED
FOR THE GREEN GRASS THAT YOU’RE SEARCHING FOR IS RIGHT BEFORE YOUR EYES!
