Then What

Album: Rumor Has It (1997)
Charted: 65
  • I got a good friend who's got a good life
    He's got two pretty children and a real nice wife
    Yet he never seems quite satisfied
    I said I know what' s on your mind
    But you better think about it before you cross that line
    The grass ain't always greener on the other side
    Then what
    What you gonna do
    When the new wears off and the old shines through
    And it ain't really love and it ain't really lust
    And you ain't anybody anyone's gonna trust
    Then what
    Where you gonna turn
    When you can't turn back for the bridges you've burned
    And fate can't wait to kick you in the butt
    Then what, oh then what
    I ain't sayin' that lookin's a crime
    I've done my share from time to time
    It don't mean that you got to take that leap
    When you're standin' on the brink
    Before you jump you gotta step back and think
    There's a price for every promise you don't keep
    Then what
    What you gonna do
    When the new wears off and the old shines through
    And it ain't really love and it ain't really lust
    And you ain't anybody anyone's gonna trust
    Then what
    Where you gonna turn
    When you can't turn back for the bridges you've burned
    And fate can't wait to kick you in the butt
    Then what, oh then what
    But do what you want do what you wish
    It's your life but remember this
    There's bound to be some consequences
    For sneakin' under certain fences
    Then what
    What you gonna do
    When the new wears off and the old shines through
    And it ain't really love and it ain't really lust
    And you ain't anybody anyone's gonna trust
    Then what
    Where you gonna turn
    When you can't turn back for the bridges you've burned
    And fate can't wait to kick you in the butt
    Then what, oh then what
