Well you wash it down

With a bottle of green, and

Swallow hard,

Like the fate of your dreams.

 

Can’t see the letter

In the faded light, so

You drop the pen

And surrender to the night.

 

But what if this was meant to be.

But what if this was meant to be.

 

Time waits for no mouse,

So you better start acting like a lion.

You say I took the coward’s way out.But it’s not easy when living’s harder than dying.

 

So your faith grows tall

With two bottles of green, as

You read the last page

To the girl of your dreams.

 

“You leave me cold,

You won’t tie the know, so

I guess I’ll do it for you,

My love.”

 

But what if this was meant to be.

But what if this was meant to be.

 

Time waits for no mouse,

So you better start acting like a lion.

You say I took the coward’s way out.But it’s not easy when living’s harder than dying.

 

Only after you slip

The rope around your throat

Do you realise

That real life

Is better than,

Better than you’d hoped. (X4)

 

But what if this was meant to be.

But what if this was meant to be.

 

Time waits for no mouse,

So you better start acting like a lion.

You say I took the coward’s way out.But it’s not easy when living’s harder than dying.

 

All it took were two bottles of green, ooh.
