Green: Green

Edie Brickell: Green


This song by Edie Brickell, formerly with New Bohemians (remember Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars?) and wife of Paul Simon (they now have three children), from her first solo album Picture Perfect Morning released in 1994, sounds to be a modern take on the "grass is always greener" theory...

I want to laugh the way they laugh.

See all my blues get back up in the sky.

If only we had what they had.

We'd never worry and we'd never cry for... green.

Have you seen green?

Have you seen grass?

So green... grass.

So green.

I'd like to be like that.
