Tom Waits - All The World Is Green

I fell into the ocean
When you became my wife
I risked it all against the sea
To have a better life

Marie you are the wild blue sky
Men do foolish things
You turn kings into beggars
And beggars into kings



Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
When all the world is green



The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The questions begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow?

Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
And all the world is green



Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
Can we bring back the old days again?
And all the world is green



The moon is yellow silver
On the things that summer brings
It's a love you'd kill for
And all the world is green

He's balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our graves
When all the world is green



Pretend that you owe me nothing
And all the world is green
We can bring back the old days again
When all the world is green



He's balancing a diamond
On a blade of grass
The dew will settle on our graves
When all the world is green.
