Just Out of Reach ~ 1975
 
The Grass Keeps
Right On Growin'
 
The grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin' 
there are apples on the apple tree
ain't life a funny thing, flowers bloom an' birds still sing an'
everything's the same except for me . . .
 
Everything's the same except for me . . . 
because, you're gone . . . 
I tell myself you're really gone 
How can it be, but there it is, 
I'm alone once again . . .
 
An' life goes on 
without your smile I knew so well 
the secrets that we used to tell 
yesterday way back when?
 
And . . . the grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin' 
the skies are blue the way they used to be
ain't life a funny thing, kids play tag an' church bells ring an'
everything's the same except for me . . .
 
Everything's the same except for me . . . 
'cause, you're not there . . . 
I look for you but you're not there 
I hear your voice , it's just a trick 
that my mind wants to play . . . 
How can this world keep turnin' like it used to do? 
There's no more world, there's no more you, 
no more words left to say . . .
 
And . . . the grass keeps right on growin'
the sun goes right on shinin' 
there are apples on the apple tree
ain't life a funny thing, flowers bloom an' birds that sing an'
everything the same except for me . . .
 
 . . . everything's the same except for me . . .
