Greener Grass

There’s no harm in trying
Some days you can’t go wrong
There’s no harm in falling
When you do…listen to this song

I’ve been happy
Good Lord knows I’ve been sad
Faced the world head on
And took the good with the bad

Some days you wake up
And wish they’d be over
Some days you wake up
And they're filled with clover

         I’m still warm
         No I’m not cold
         I won’t live forever
         May not grow old

         I can’t hang on tomorrow
         I can’t dwell on yesterdays sorrow
         I won’t see the days new dawn
         If  today I’m already gone 

Sometimes you’re out in the cold
Sometimes caught in the storm 
Sometimes your bones are aching 
Searching for some feeling good warm

Sometimes  you’ll feel all alone
Like you just can’t find a friend
Sometimes the worlds on your shoulder
And you’ll break at the bend
God is my witness
This to shall pass…
And it will bring
Greener grass                                                        
  
          I’m still warm
          No I’m not cold
          I won’t live forever
          May not grow old

          I can’t hang on tomorrow
          I can’t dwell on yesterdays sorrow
          I won’t see the days new dawn
          If  today I’m already gone 

Like all of Gods good creatures... Ya gotta keep,  keeping on
Like all  of Gods good creatures…Ya gotta keep,  keeping on...Ya gotta keep,  keeping on
