Lyrics
It's like I just woke up one morning
Looked at the way that we live
Thought things could be so much better
There must be better than this

And if I relocated
To where the grass is greener
Maybe I'd be happy again
But I'm a little bit disappointed
'cause now I've got my freedom
But I'm still looking over the fence

It's always the same
At the end of the day
You always want what you haven't got

It's like the hands on the clock stopped turning
Right at the moment you left
You went looking for something better
You stopped me dead in my tracks

It's a bittersweet emotion
That I'm feeling, baby, now you're happy again
But I'm a little bit disappointed
'cause now you've got your freedom

But you're still looking over the fence
It's always the same
At the end of the day
You always want what you haven't got

It's always the same
It won't ever change
You always want what you haven't got

Thought if I relocated
To where the grass is greener
Maybe I'd be happy again
But I'm a little bit disappointed
'cause now I've got my freedom
But I'm still looking over the fence

It's always the same
At the end of the day
You always want what you haven't got

It's always the same
It won't ever change
You always want what you haven't got

You always want what you haven't got
You always want what you haven't got
You always want what you haven't got
