Gregory Porter – Brown Grass


My music guru shared this with me and I absolutely loved it. If you know me then you know music speaks to my soul. Hope you enjoy.

Brown grass
On the other side
Nothing but brown grass
Now I’m open wide
To the truth I left behind
Her loves so hard to find

Now I find myself
Falling down on brown grass
Now I find myself
Rolling ’round on brown grass

Brown grass
On the other side
Nothing but brown grass
Now I made a mess
Of the life I had with you
In search of something new

Now I find myself
Falling down on brown grass
Now I find myself
Rolling ’round on brown grass
Why didn’t I know that she was an essential part of me
I thought that I needed to find me and I needed to be free
Why didn’t I know that she was all that I would ever need
I looked at the distant view and thought it was for me

But now I know
It was just brown grass
On the other side
Nothing but brown grass

Now I’m open wide
To the truth I left behind
Her loves so hard to find

Now I find myself falling down on brown grass
Now I find myself rolling ’round on brown grass

Why didn’t I know that she was a essential part of me
I thought that I needed to find me and I needed to be free
Why didn’t I know that she was all that I would ever need
I looked at the distant view and thought it was for me

But now I know
It was just brown grass
On the other side
Nothing but brown grass

Now I’m open wide
To the truth I left behind
Her loves so hard to find

Now I find myself falling down on brown grass
Now I find myself rolling ’round on brown grass
Now I find myself falling down on brown grass

  1. I’m a work now up to my ears in paperwork that I want to get done so unfortunately I won’t be able to hear the actual song until I get off in about 1 hour. But I am quite familiar with Mr. Porter’s work and the songs I like by him….I really like.

    So I can only assume that if the music is at least equal to the lyrics then I’m problably going to consider this song “a keeper.”

    The lyrics are deep.

    Thanks so much for shairng!
