Life is never what it seems, we're always searching in our dreams
To find that little castle in the air
When worry starts to cloud the mind, it's hard to leave it all behind
And just pretend you haven't got a care

There's someone else in your imagination
You wish that you were standing in their shoes
You'd change your life without much hesitation
But would you if you really had to choose?

So, don't look around, get your feet on the ground
It's much better by far to be just who your are

The other man's grass is always greener
The sun shines brighter on the other side
The other man's grass is always greener
Some are lucky, some are not
Just be thankful for what you've got

Many times it seems to me there's someone else I'd rather be
Living in a world of make-believe
To stay in bed till nearly three with nothing there to worry me
It'd seem to be the life I might achieve

But deep inside I know I'm really lucky
With happiness I've never known before
And just as long as you are there beside me
I know that I could ask for nothing more

And living can start with the love in your heart
So with you all the time, all the treasures I long for are mine

The other man's grass is always greener
The sun shines brighter on the other side
The other man's grass is always greener
Some are lucky, some are not
But I'm so thankful for what I've got

Yes, the other man's grass is always greener
The sun shines brighter on the other side
The other man's grass is always greener
Some are lucky, some are not
But I'm so thankful for what I've got
