​Greener Side

This song is by Red Herring and appears on the album The Sooner You Accept It (2006).

My car used to be the shit.
By that I mean
It really sucked,
In every way,
But that's ok,
It mostly made me laugh.

Yeah we used to call it The Beast,
And when my new car breaks
At least it isn't half as bad,
As having the hood fly up on the way to class.

And it really takes me back,
Back to looking forward.
It's the future and I'm past,
Viewing them as two.

Growin' up ain't growin' out,
Of the days when we would
Laugh out loud at everything.
Has everything really changed at all?

Growin' up ain't growin' out,
I never could forget about,
How we used to see,
The day-to-day,
The way we ought to be.

Now I'm sittin' here at my job,
Thinkin' about what everyone thinks about
When they're workin' hard,
Getting hardly paid,
Countin' down to the end of the day.

Good thing is when your day ends at five,
Man, it gives you a lot of time
To do what you do,
Say what you say,
Enough to make this song you're hearing today.

And it really takes me back,
Back to looking forward.
It's the future and I'm past,
Viewing them as two.

Growin' up ain't growin' out,
Of the days when we would
Laugh out loud at everything.
Has everything really changed at all?

Growin' up ain't growin' out,
I never could forget about,
How we used to see,
The day-to-day,
The way we ought to be.

And maybe half-full's the only way,
To end each day with lemonade.
And as you smile the clouds subside,
Welcome to the Greener Side.

And maybe half-full's the only way,
To end each day with lemonade.
And as you smile the clouds subside,
Welcome to the Greener Side.

And maybe half-full's the only way,
To end each day with lemonade.
And as you smile the clouds subside,
Welcome to the Greener Side.
