lyrics

This is it, my love
The time has come
Time to undo
What is over and done
I can't take these orders
From you anymore
I'm tightening up that old belt again
And closing the door

For there's too many strangers
Coming in through here
And if dark clouds that are gathering
Must be your fault, my dear
Well it’s 45 years
Since you were my bride
And now the grass is always greener
On the other side

Well remember back when
A bit before we met
I was handsome & strong
I’d never broken a sweat
Well I'm going back there
Cause I was free to roam
Yes, riding my wild gold unicorns
& not tied to this stone

And though we haven’t had a fight
We've argued like hell
& I always fancied my chances
Hey well couldn't ya tell?
Now seems hanging out
Has made a dint on my pride
And the grass is always greener
On the other side

So this is it, my love
The time has come
Time to undo
What is over and done
Now I want to eat the whole cake
& I won’t be denied
As the grass is always greener…on the other side
