Don't remind me that some days I'm the wind shield
And other days I'm just a lucky bug
These cold iron rails leave old mossy trails through the countryside
The crow and the bean field are my best friends but boy, I need a hug.
(Boy I need a hug)
'Cause my heart stops without you, there's something about you
That make me feel alive!

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

Don't remind me that I'm a chickadee in love with the sky,
That's clearly not a lot to crow about,
'Cause when the stars silhouette me, I'm scared they'll forget me,
And flicker out.

I taste honey but I haven't seen the hive,
Yeah, I didn't look, I didn't even try,
But still my heart stops without you 'cause there's something about you,
That makes me feel alive.

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
But if I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

We are honey and the bee,

Backyard of butterflies surrounded me,
I fell in love with you like bees to honey,
So let's up and leave the weeping to the willow tree,
And pour out tears in the sea.

I swear, there's a lot of vegetables out there,
That crop up for air,
Yeah, I never thought, we were two peas in a pod,
Until you suddenly bloomed, then I knew
That I'd always love you.
Oh, I'll always love you too.

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
If I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

If the green left the grass on the other side,
I would make like a tree and leave,
If I reached for your hand would your eyes get wide?
Who knew the other side could be so green?

And if I reached for your hand for the rest of my life,
Who knew the other side could be so green?

    Thumbs up if you think adam young and breanne duren (the "small girl" voice) duet is one of the best thing that happened in the music industry

    To the person asking what "i would make like a tree and leave means", it's in reference to "if the green left the grass on the other side", meaning she was in an unhappy place or feeling like she was lacking, she would try to get away from that in her life and move to where "the grass is greener" so to speak, the same way a tree would leave where there is no grass if it could. So she would "make like a tree and leave" by making changes in her life if she was unhappy "the green left the grass". Very metaphorical and symbolic, but a really cool kind of analogy and poetic connection there, like many of his songs have.
