Picket Fences Submit Correct Lyrics

I have tried and I've tried
But I ain't ever satisfied
This hunger burning in my soul
Like an old dog scratching at the door, wanting more
Gonna eat me out of house and home
I tried to fill it with a kiss
From a stranger on the lips
Eased my mind for a second or two
Then it put me on the ground
I am lost but I have found
That the only one can save me is you

The grass is never greener
The dog is always meaner
And a white picket fence
Makes a solid defense
When your trying to find your way back home

Now you're all out of grace
I can see it on your face
And there won't be one more last chance
You're moving on and above
And I'll never find love
In a second hand me down romance
I can touch her at night
When we turn out the light
But it's your skin that I feel
I can't look her in the eye
Afraid she'll see you in mine
And the longing I don't wanna conceal

The grass is never greener
The dog is always meaner
And a white picket fence
Makes a solid defense
When your trying to find your way back home

When I see you around
I won't ever make a sound
But I'm screaming that I need you inside
I have been defeated by my demons
Who have cheated me
Right out of what I used to call mine
So farewell my love
You're the one I'm thinking of
While I'm lying in this bed I made
As I'm sleeping here beside her
A continual reminder
Of the final warning that you gave

The grass is never greener
The dog is always meaner
And a white picket fence
Makes a solid defense
When your trying to find your way back home
