lyrics

The grass is brown
And the sky looks pink
And I'm racking my little brain
For an ounce of rain
But it don't fall down
It don't shoot up
I keep it all inside my love
And someday soon the dam will break
And I will wash you away

The sky bleeds red
When the sun goes home for the night
And I'm racking up all the points
So I can win a prize
But I don't need toys, I don't need cash
I just want enough so you'll want me back
And someday soon my luck will fade
The ruby slippers decay

The facts will cease to matter once the movie fades to black
And your compliments mean nothing to a swollen, crippled calf
I've lost in love so many times, what does one more failure do?
But I see so many things in you and none of them are cruel

I try to sleep, your absence stings me, I can't sleep
I'd like to be so far out west I never met me
This can't be real, you can be so sweet I feel bad
I'm tender like a cinder block, you must know that

But the grass is brown
And the sky looks pink
And the sun went home
Now we're all alone
And I hope you still like me when I'm sad
And I hope you still like me when your grass is green
Your grass is green, your grass is green
Your grass is green, your grass is green
Your grass is green, your grass is green
Your grass is green, your grass is green
