"Green" as written by and Edie Arlisa Brickell....
We like to spy on the neighbors.
They look so happy together.
Funny the power of strangers.
Sometimes I wonder if they got it better.
Green. Have you seen green?
Check out the view from the rooftop.
They've got a horse and a big trampoline.
Running and jumping till they drop.
Down on the ground and they're rolling around in... green.
Have you seen green?
Have you seen green grass?
So green, grass.
So green.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be moving on a lawn, so green.
I want to laugh the way they laugh.
See all my blues get back up in the sky.
If only we had what they had.
We'd never worry and we'd never cry for, green.
Have you seen green?
Have you seen grass?
So green, grass.
So green.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be like that.
I'd like to be moving on a lawn, so green.
