​The Greening Of America

This song is by Counting Crows.

She's closing all the shades,
She finds the daylight just a little frightening,
She pulls the pedals overhead each day,
But she's opening her business is blooming nightly,
And every time it does it gets me hazy,
The color of her head changing every day,
A little breath of wind and I just go crazy,
The greening of Americas progressing smoothly,
'Cause she's choosing me.

It's later than I said,
And all the worlds a shade of black and purple,
Everybody else has gone to bed,
When she makes me happy I just fly in circles,
And every time she does I just get teary,
The color of her head changing everyday,
A little puff of wind and she's always near me,
The greening of America is progressing nicely,
It's all right with me.

If there's another life,
And if I got to choose I'd like to be a daisy,
I'll stay up waiting for my dusky wife,
To open and get high with just my jasmine baby,
And every time she does it gets me crazy,
The color of her head changing every day,
A little breath of wind and I just get crazy,
The greening of Americas progressing nicely,
It's all right with me.

Every time she does, I just get teary,
The color of her head changing every day,
A little breath of wind and she's always near me,
The greening of Americas progressing smoothly,
'Cause she's choosing me.
