The Grass is Rarely Greener

“After a time, you may find that ‘having’ is not so pleasing a thing after all as ‘wanting.’ It is not logical, but it is often true.” – Mr. Spock, Star Trek, Amok Time

“Then What?” is a song written by Jon Vezner and Randy Sharp and recorded by country music singer Clay Walker in 1998. It rose to #2 on the Billboard Hot Country charts and tells the story of a man advising his friend against committing adultery.

Here are some of the lyrics…

Well I got a good friend who's got a good life
He's got two pretty children and a real nice wife
Yet he never seems quite satisfied
I said "I know what's on your mind
But you better think about it before you cross that line
The grass ain't always greener on the other side"

Then what, what you gonna do
When the new wears off and the old shines through
And it ain't really love and it ain't really lust?
You ain't anybody anybody's gonna trust
Then what, where you gonna turn
When you can't turn back for the bridges you burn
And fate can't wait to kick you in the butt?

Well I ain't saying that lookin's a crime
Well I've done my share from time to time
It don't mean that you gotta take that leap
When you're standin' on the brink
Before you jump you gotta step back and think
There's price for ever promise you don't keep

Sounds like very good advice to me!

“May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.” Proverbs 5:18 (BSB)
