Ben Rector – Green lyrics

[Verse 1]
We took a flight to the Pacific Northwest
I've had a longing to go there deep in my chest
Like a dream
Left Portland in the mornin' headed for the coast
Feels like middle of nowhere, windin' down this road
And then I see it
This can't be real

[Chorus]
I've never seen a greener green than that
The sea salt air I'm breathin' brings life back
Together, we're alive and free, holdin' hands on the beach
And I remember what it is to be
So green
It was so green

[Verse 2]
Take a lighthouse tour, we saw the octopus tree
Feels like some Wes Anderson movie scene
In the breeze
Made a bonfire on the beach, talked late into the night
We made love after bottles of cheap red wine
It was way too sweet (mmm, yeah)
You taste so sweet

[Chorus]
I've never seen a greener green than that
The sea salt air I'm breathin' brings life back
Together, we're alive and free, holdin' hands on the beach
And I remember what it is to be
So green
Yeah, it was so green

[Interlude]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

[Chorus]
I've never seen a greener green than that
The sea salt air I'm breathin' brings life back
Together, we're alive and free, holdin' hands on the beach
And I remember what it is to be
You and I rememberin' what it is to be
So green
It was so green
