green as green lyrics – fretblanket

i’m still waiting for the sun to come up on the day after the end of the world,
i’m still trying to talk myself round, trying to find the words,
but it’s just another reminder, the straw that’ll break my back,
i was sent here to find myself and now they’re gonna send me back.
i’m still thinking that the chance is there, pinch me and i might wake,
i’ve been alternatively threatened and flattered,
laughed so hard i thought i would break
but we pick up the pieces and mend ourselves, tell each other it’s not so bad,
put your best foot forward boy, take another step back,
and we’ll sleep tonight, our luck is out of sight
and all our strength is miles away,
but we take our time to find we’re great, just fine,
and our mistakes just fly away
i’ve spat venom with the rest of the snakes, going at it hammer and tongues,
i’ve kicked innocent men into shape when my mouth ran away with the song,
i’ve poked fun at the victims, the heroes and villains i’ve made,
i’m still waiting for the sun to arrive so i can find the shade,
and we’ll sleep tonight, our luck is out of sight
and all our strength is miles away…
i tried to find you, tried to show you i was wrong,
i tried to touch you but you’d gone…
and we’ll sleep tonight, our luck is out of sight
and all our strength is miles away,
but we take our time to find we’re great, just fine,
and our mistakes just fly away…
