The Grass Is Blue

Album: The Grass Is Blue (1999)
  • I've had to think up a way to survive
    Since you said it's over
    Told me good-bye

    I just can't make it one day without you
    Unless I pretend that the opposite's true

    Rivers flow backwards
    Valleys are high
    Mountains are level
    Truth is a lie

    I'm perfectly fine
    And I don't miss you
    The sky is green
    And the grass is blue

    How much can a heart and a troubled mind take
    Where is that fine line before it all breaks
    Can one end their sorrow
    Just cross over it
    And into that realm of insanitive bliss

    There's snow in the tropics
    There's ice on the sun
    It's hot in the Arctic
    And crying is fun
    And I'm happy now
    And I'm glad we're through
    And the sky is green
    And the grass is blue

    And the rivers flow backwards
    And my tears are dry
    Swans hate the water
    And eagles can't fly
    But I'm alright now
    Now that I'm over you
    And the sky is green
    And the grass is blue
    And I don't love you
    And the grass is blueWriter/s: DOLLY PARTON
