lyrics

A roving eye, a roving eye never did anyone any good
Little white lies, little white lies will raze this neighborhood
Repeat them enough and they become your truth
Ignore the cards and signs so says the soothe
Trying to relive all the glories of your youth

You think the grass is always greener
And dirtier is better than cleaner
When it all amounts to what’s under the sweater is all that counts
You think the grass is always greener

I do or die, I do or die but both choices are good as dead
Live for the tie, live for the tie though you never ever led
Is the time right? Do you pay and play?
Get blown off course you go further away
Still it all comes back to the end of the day

You think the grass is always greener
And dirtier is better than cleaner
When it all amounts to what’s under the sweater is all that counts
You think the grass is always greener

You think the grass is always greener
And dirtier is better than cleaner
When it all amounts to what’s under the sweater is all that counts
You think the grass is always greener
