Splendor in the grass – Pink Martini

Standard

A great song all about taking time to stop and rest and a nice video as well!

Good for people who have got too busy – for services or events about Sabbath rest and refreshment.

I want to write ‘Splendour’ in the grass but Pink Martini are an American band so I will stick with their spelling!

Lyrics:

 

I can see you’re thinking baby
I’ve been thinking too
about the way we used to be
and how to start anew

Maybe I’m a hopeless dreamer
maybe I’ve got it wrong
but I’m going where the grass is green
if you’d like to come along

Back when I was starting out
I always wanted more
but every time I got it
I still felt just like before

Fortune is a fickle friend
I’m tired of chasing fame
and when I look into your eyes
I know you feel the same

All these years of living large
are starting to do us in
I won’t say it wasn’t fun
but now it has to end

Life is moving oh so fast
I think we should take it slow
rest our heads upon the grass
and listen to it grow

Going where the hills are green
and the cars are few and far
days are full of splendor
and at night you can see the stars

Life’s been moving oh so fast
I think we should take it slow
rest our heads upon the grass
and listen to it grow
