Maybe if you came about
Maybe if you turned this ship around
If you waited this one out
and just put your head down

Oh, in your dreams you find out
Though it’s not quite how you remember
In your dreams you find out
Everything’s greener
You’re still hard to please

Maybe if you lightened up
Maybe if you wrote that anthem
Raising high a Dixie Cup
Don’t put your hand down

Oh, in your dreams you find out
Though it’s not quite how you remember
In your dreams you find out
Everything’s greener
You’re still hard to please

What is it worth to you to be a free someone?
What is it worth to you? What would you do?
Everything.

Maybe if you came about
Baby don’t you run this ship aground
Feet of water in the well,
but you can’t keep her head down
No, you can’t keep her head down

Oh, in your dreams you find out
Though it’s not quite how you remember
In your dreams you find out
Everything’s greener
You’re still hard to
Everything’s greener
You’re still hard
Everything’s greener
You’re still hard to please

Everything's greener
Everything's greener
Everything's greener

    General CommentI think it's the other side of "ignorance is bliss." You could be dumb and happy, but she can't be. She's always pushing harder and trying hard, but in her dreams the other side of the fence is so much better. She thinks about "lightening up" raising her Dixie cup high to whatever anthem is the song of happy people, but she can't "run her ship aground." Instead of keeping her head down and out of the way like everyone else, she has to keep being tough.
