green grass lyrics – bonnie mckee

are you leaving?
do i feel you disappear?
am i crying?
am i dreaming?
will i wake up years ago?
am i dying?
well i remember so long ago
when the sky was still blue
i was welcomed and loved, not alone
not alone
and i remember, so long ago
when it still felt so good
and you told me i could
have my way with you
i remember, way down inside
you’re pretending
make-believing i’m in charge
i’m a child
i am starving
i am eating from your hands
feed me fiction
well i remember, so long ago
when we met, i was new
and you told me the truth sets you free
yes you did
and i remember so long ago
when the green in your eyes
set off something inside me that burns
feel it burning
way down inside
on that beautiful night
i watched you while you slept
through my warm, purple high
in the green gr*ss
where i held you, and i wept
in the green gr*ss where i wept
way down inside
i remember, so long ago
when you said not a word
but i know that i heard your goodbye
yes i did
and i remember so long ago
when i knew you were gone
but your love lingered on through the years
i still love you
way down inside
would the moon forget the tide?
would the soul forget to die?
would the wind forget to sigh?
would my eyes forget to cry?
i’ll remember like the moon
way down inside
i’ll remember like the moon
way down inside
