ON THE GREENER SIDE
Michelle Shocked


I tell you what I will do

I'll bend them into a crown of thorns

And send it right back to you


Your love, love, love

Don't keep me satisfied

And though I've never been there

I know it's always greener

On the greener side


Say you wanna give me a run for my money

Here's something I'm gonna admit

It may sound funny, but Romeo, honey

I don't want none of your


Love, love, love, it

Don't keep me satisfied

And though I've never been there

I know it's always greener

On the greener side


My love is like a wishing well

Your love is like a clear blue sky

Sometimes it takes a thunderstorm

To fill me when I'm dry


Your love, love, love

Don't keep me satisfied

And though I've never been there

I know it's always greener

On the greener side
