about

This is a song based on a poem by Roy Carter-Brown. It is about a man who is beginning an affair, the poem is a note of caution. It this really greener grass?

lyrics

Stand at the fence of lust and linger,
A while before you climb
Sharp can be the pointing finger,
That knows who's behind your smile.

Her promises amount, perhaps,
to everything a man could ask.
But paths to her are broken glass,
so softly you must tread to pass.

There's just one thing that you should know,
Before you set your heart and go,
Into this world of cloak and mask,
Is this really greener grass?

Temptation's got you in her grasp,
but only for a while,
How long can fascination last,
How long can she make you smile?

There's just one thing that you should know,
Before you set your heart and go,
Into this world of cloak and mask,
Is this really greener grass?
