Now that the truth is hard to face
I can't forget you once were mine
Someone else is in my place
Whenever we meet my heart beats out of time

1. Just a little bit of green
Clouds my eyes to what I've seen
Just a little bit of green
When I see you with someone new
And knowing that there's nothing I can do 

Please don't try and tie me down
Those are the words you often say
I can't help seeing you around
You smile with surprise
and I turn my eyes away 

1. 1. (repeat)

Just a little bit of green
