"Green Grass" as written by and Bonnie Leigh Mckee Bonnie Mckee....
Are you leaving?
Do I feel you disappear?
Am I crying?
Am I dreaming?
Will I wake up years ago?
Am I dying?

Well I remember so long ago
When the sky was still blue
I was welcomed and loved, not alone
Not alone

And I remember, so long ago
When it still felt so good
And you told me I could
Have my way with you
I remember, way down inside

You're pretending
Make-believing I'm in charge
I'm a child
I am starving
I am eating from your hands
Feed me fiction

Well I remember, so long ago
When we met, I was new
And you told me the truth sets you free
Yes you did

And I remember so long ago
When the green in your eyes
Set off something inside me that burns
Feel it burning
Way down inside

On that beautiful night
I watched you while you slept
Through my warm, purple high
In the green grass
Where I held you, and I wept
In the green grass where I wept
Way down inside

I remember, so long ago
When you said not a word
But I know that I heard your goodbye
Yes I did

And I remember so long ago
When I knew you were gone
But your love lingered on through the years
I still love you
Way down inside

Would the moon forget the tide?
Would the soul forget to die?
Would the wind forget to sigh?
Would my eyes forget to cry?
I'll remember like the moon
Way down inside
I'll remember like the moon
Way down inside

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship fading along with time, and one of them is left to wonder what happened that drift the two apart.

    General CommentYou're pretending, make believing
    I'm in charge, I am a child
    I am starving, I am eating from your hands
    Feed me fiction - one of the most powerful lines in a song I've ever heard... so good.

    Lyric CorrectionAre you leaving?
    Do I feel you disappear?
    Am I crying?
    Am I dreaming?
    Will I wake up years ago?
    am I dying?

    Well, I remember so long ago
    And the sky was still blue,
    I was welcome and loved not alone.
    I remember so long ago and I still felt so good
    And you told me I could have my way with you
    I remember way down inside

    You're pretending, make believing
    That I'm in charge, I am a child

    I am starving, I am eating from your hands
    Feed me fiction

    Well, I remember so long ago
    When we met I was new,
    and you told me the truth sets you free, yes you did..
    And I remember so long ago
    And the green in your eyes set off something inside me that burns,
    feel it burning way down inside.

    On that beautiful night, I watched you while you slept,
    On that beautiful night,
    in the green grass, where I held you and I wept.
    In the green grass where I wept,
    way down inside.

    Well, I remember so long ago and
    You said not a word but I know that
    I heard your goodbye, yes I did
    And I remember so long ago
    And I knew you were gone,
    but your love lingered on through the years.
    I still love you, way down inside, yeah.

    Would the moon forget the tide?
    Would the soul forget to die?
    Would the wind forget to sigh?
    Would my eyes forget to cry?

    I'll remember like the moon
    Way down inside [2x]
