lyrics

You wake up late
You bitch about it for a while
Hurry off to work
And you never once smile
You’re just going through the motions
Of a man in his prime
You and I both know it
You’re just wasting time
You’re just wasting time
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side
Well you’ve heard it
Maybe you’ve even thought it?
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side
Have you tried it?
Don’t tell me you bought it!
You come home as expected
At a reasonable hour
Like you’re somehow connected
To this delicate flower
You’re just going through the motions
Of a couple in love
But you and I both know it
Its just not enough
Its never enough
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side
Well you’ve heard it
Maybe you’ve even thought it?
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side

Have you tried it?
Don’t tell me you bought it!
One of these days, you know, you’re going
to find
That your decisions could have been better.
Count yourself lucky,
Think about what you’ve got
Thank god you’re not hungry
Consider your lot!
You’re just going through a rough patch
In an otherwise perfect game
So don’t get hung up on what your neighbours
got
Were all just the same
Were all just the same
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side
Well you’ve heard it
Maybe you’ve even thought it?
Is it the grass that’s so much greener
On the other side
Have you tried it?
Don’t tell me you bought it! x 2
