lyrics

THE GRASS IS ALWAYS GREENER
Music & Lyrics © 2015 Paul Washington

Listen son here’s something you should ponder
I can see some old familiar ways
Sometimes opportunities are squandered
So listen to your old man while you may

You don’t miss your water ‘til the well runs dry
'Cause the grass is greener on the other side
You gotta pay the cost, when the dice are tossed
Your winnings ain't worth everything you lost

You're a guy I know your eye will wander
Temptation tries to lead a man astray
You keep that gal, you’ll rue the day you wronged her
I know you think its only just clichés

You don’t miss your water ‘til the well runs dry
'Cause the grass is greener on the other side
You gotta pay the cost, when the dice are tossed
Your winnings ain't worth everything you lost

Absence always makes the heart grow fonder
He’s a lucky man that finds a love that stays
I sit watching shadows growing longer
And I think about the one that got away

You don’t miss your water ‘til the well runs dry
'Cause the grass is greener on the other side
You gotta pay the cost, when the dice are tossed
Your winnings ain't worth everything you lost

You don’t miss your water ‘til the well runs dry
'Cause the grass is greener on the other side
You gotta pay the cost, when the dice are tossed
Your winnings ain't worth everything you lost
