sit back and try to remember
all those times you ran away in anger
on the run
on the search for something new
a life not only based on giving
but also gaining
something real
to make you feel you're more
than just a waste of human life

we were green as the grass, but we grew
and nothing could stop us from growing
and fighting our way through the dirt
to be claiming our right to a life worth living

we watch them coming in two by two
that look in their eyes, they don't know what to do
trying so hard to play it "cool"
no doubt that nine out of ten are hopeless fools
but there's always one
with the courage and the guts
to see all the hard way through

she is as green as the grass, but she grows
and nothing can stop her from growing
and fighting her way through the dirt
to be claiming her right to a life worth living

sit back and try to remember
what a smile or two would have mean to you
break a crack in that total wall of silence
to give that one out of ten the hope it takes to see it through

she kept on working her ass off
day by day
to keep those wheels running on
it just got harder everyday
never expected much from anyone
never really got anything at all
an occasional pat on the back
from a few good friends
is not much living off at all

and she decided to break with it all
and none could stop her from leaving
and fighting her way on her own
to be claiming her right to a life worth living

now she's gone
the emptiness she left behind
will always be so present in these rooms
when you work so hard for something you believe in
just to end up facing that wall we built within
when you cry
and no one knows just what to do
when you talk from your heart, and nobody listens
your friends
never really turned their backs on you
come back
for a day or two, and we'll get drunk together
have a cup of tea, and talk about the things we do
you know that certain things will last forever

we're still as green...
