Is the grass is greener on the other side?

hace 14 días
This phrase is often used for people who are restless and travel and leave their hometowns to pursue ambitions and a better life elsewhere.

I left because the grass was greener... and yes it was greener, but there is still a dream I am following for something better yet, more beautiful, more magnificent.

Is the grass greener somewhere else?

Was the grass greener in the past?

Or, could the grass yet be greener in the future?

What is it that drives you forward?

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young In a world of magnets and miracles Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary The ringing of the division bell had begun Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway Do they still meet there by the Cut There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps Running before times took our dreams away Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground To a life consumed by slow decay The grass was greener The light was brighter When friends surrounded The nights of wonder
Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again Dragged by the force of some inner tide At a higher altitude with flag unfurled We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world Encumbered forever by desire and ambition There's a hunger still unsatisfied Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon Though down this road we've been so many times The grass was greener The light was brighter The taste was sweeter The nights of wonder With friends surrounded The dawn mist glowing The water flowing The endless river Forever and ever
