All The World Is Green
Tom Waits Lyrics


I fell into the ocean
And 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
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
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
When all the world is green

Moon is yellow silver
Oh, 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

And all the world is green
Can we bring back the old days again
When all the world is green
Moon is yellow silver
Oh, the things that summer brings
It's a love…

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

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

Amazing

@Bianca Blaney-Thivierge I agree, so much soul and feeling in it

Bianca Blaney-Thivierge

That song is quite as you say, bluesy up and down all at once. Quite the vibe. This man has a voice

The instrumentation choices here are impossibly good. I would never have thought "you know what would sound great with this clarinet? Some marimba." Also just the overall sound. You can practically hear the space the instruments are playing in. I don't know how else to describe it.

Toms just a genius, really.

Tom is something amazing and true in this false world. His songs can bring me to tears very easily. Because this is how it is for us, and it isn't anything like we were told it would be. Tom Waits is important.

I have been addicted to this song since hearing it a few years ago. I'm pretty sure I have played this at least once a week for roughly 3 years now, and it somehow gets better with each listen. Praise the gods for Tom Waits.
