"Green" as written by and Alex Wasiliev....
This house is your own,
Still living alone
It don't make you sad,
But I think it's good to be green

This summer is gone,
And spring don't belong,
The traces are here,
For long winter,
I miss the green,
It used to be clean

If you want to be free,
Please don't fall for me,
I could be anyone but your friend
If you open the door,
I'll give a whole lot more,
I could be anyone, anyone,
Yeah

Assumption is good,
Though not likelihood,
My feeling is true,
I want to be living with you

The truth it begins,
We're breathing it in,
With shadows of doubt,
In time we will all miss the green,
It used to be clean

If you want to be free,
Please don't fall for me,
I could be anyone but your friend
If you open the door,
I'll give a whole lot more,
I could be anyone, anyone,
Yeah

If you want to be free,
Please don't fall for me,
I could be anyone but your friend
If you open the door,
I'll give a whole lot more,
I could be anyone but your friend

Anyone, anyone,
Anyone, nah nah nah no

Anyone, anyone,
Anyone, yeah

If you want to be free,
Please don't fall for me,
I could be anyone but your friend
If you open the door,
I'll give a whole lot more,
I could be anyone but your friend

Anyone, anyone,
Anyone, nah nah nah no

Anyone, anyone,
Anyone, yeah

Seeing is believing,
The feeling is deceiving,
You know it's the truth
When you find that you can't talk

Leaving on this,
All into chaos
Seeing is feeling is
Seeing is feeling is you
Feeling is you woah

Nah Nah Nah no

Anyone Anyone
Anyone Yeah

    General Commenti think this song is about marijuana use.
    i thought money or environmental issues but you read those lyrics with drug use in mind and it encourages disuse

    General Commenti kinda agree with cello, some of it does sound as if he's referring to pot
    but i've always thought it's about two friends that fall for each other, "if you open the door, i'll give a whole lot more"
    but he's so seriously in love with her and wants to be together for ever "if you wanna be free, please don't fall for me" in a nut shell, if you're not sure and you wanna explore others, then don't fall for him
    and the words "i could be anyone but your friend" suggests that he can't stand to be friends with her anymore because he loves her so much it just hurts him.
    i think it's all about that because i'm kinda in that situation now, and everytime i hear this song i think of him
    or maybe i'm just pathetic.

    General CommentI think of it as a song about old and new relationships, and here is my take on it:

    He is at the moment getting over bad times, and is finding pure love with somebody new. The first verse reveals that the girl he is talking to is alone, but he feels it is better to be "green", in a growing, healthy relationship with somebody. In the second verse, he dwells on how his life is a "long winter" of unhappiness because "summer is gone", his happier times are over. He misses the "green" of love.

    However, he wants commitment. He doesn't want a casual, short-term relationship. So if the girl wants "to be free", she should not set her sights on him. However, at the moment, it's all or nothing - he feels so much love for her, that if she does not be his forever, then he cannot simply be her friend. If she only opens the "door" of her heart to him, he will give everything he has to make her happy.

    After the chorus, we see that he is sure of his feelings: he wants to be living with her, for the rest of his days. And though she may be doubtful, the truth is that she doesn't have forever, and that soon she too will miss a secure relationship as well. So one of the themes is semper fi, "sieze the day".

    Combined with the last verse that implies a sense that she is somehow speechless at this request of his ("you know it's the truth when you find that you can't talk") I feel the song is not only about relationships, but about a man proposing to his beloved in the most romantic way he can.

    If anybody else agrees or disagrees, please leave comments...

    General CommentMarijuana use is a good suggestion for a possible meaning, because Alex Lloyd did used to have a drugs and rock and roll kind of lifestyle which he has since given up as he now has a wife and child.

    The suggestion of it being about some kind of relationship that may or may not start up is also a very real possibility, if anyone has seen the video for the song. It shows Alex's head on a body with moving parts that open up to show things such as butterflies in the stomach, etc.

    Or, just another out there meaning: It could be a propoganda song for the Greens political party.

    General CommentI totally agree with 6th_sadistic_sniper and hippie, when i first listen to this song and tried to piece this song into a video clip ( and i still havent seen), but i imagined it being about a relationship
    "If you wanna be free, please dont fall for me"
