Another Kind Of Green Lyrics - John Mayer



Review The Song (14)


Sara's friend she lost her mind
She left him and made it look sexy now
I fear you won't be far behind
Thinking I'll be the next to leave
I know I might be anxious
But I'm still not crazy

And I don't need another kind of green to know I'm on the right side with you

I used to be the one you saw
When crying alone to sad songs
But then we go and we hit the wall
When nothing has changed and nothing's wrong
You're not the perfect hand
But I don't hit on nineteen

And I don't need another kind of green to know
I'm on the right side
I'm on the right side with you
With you

So go and drift away from me
Adopt some new philosophy
That doesn't hold the two of us in mind
Move into someone else's place
Stare into some other's eyes
But slowly only come to realize

That you didn't need another kind of green to know
I'm on the right side
You're on the right side
I'm on the right side with you
Oh, I was on the right side
You don't need to lose to know that you had it good
You don't need to lose it to know that you had it good
You don't need to lose it to know that you had it
Know that you had it
Know that you had it
Don't need to lose it to know that you had it good

another kind of green | Reviewer: anynomous | 6/17/11

This song depicts the anxiety some people get during a relationship. The anxiety or the "spooked" feeling, that makes someone wonder is there any other person out there? John Mayer in this song believes he doesn't need to go out looking for anything better, but his lover clearly is becoming anxious.



It's not about weed | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/13/11

"Another kind of green" references the saying "the grass is always greener on the other side". John is simply saying he doesn't need to go to the other side in order to see how good his life is currently - or his love. If you automatically think "marijuana" when you hear this song, you'd probably just like to believe that. Go for it. You'll be wrong, but then again that's just my opinion.



John is 420 friendly. | Reviewer: DT | 10/2/09

This song is obviously talking about only loving someone when you're under the influence of drugs.

Mayer is saying he doesn't need "another kind of green" - or marijuana, rather, to know he is in love. Lots of people only have feelings for each other while they're high, but he is saying this relationship is so good he doesn't have to be high to enjoy it!

Everyone interprets songs differently. John Mayer is a great musician because he taps into the musician of his audience. Perhaps all he is saying is that people constantly move on bc they are in search of something better. Sometimes what you have is not perfect, but it's so close. Why would you move on? You're not the perfect hand, but I don't hit on 19.



JM is on the greener side | Reviewer: Mrs.Mayer | 4/14/08

this definitely refers to the grass being greener on the other side. "you don't need to lose to know that you had it good" that refers to the girl leaving him and then coming back to him. She realized that she was on the greener side when she was with him after she left him. You see he's smart, he doesn't need to look for greener grass. He realizes that he is on the greener side with her so he "doesnt need another kind of green to know". I love you JM! So romantic <3



My Intro to Mayer | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/19/08

At 50+ I have been fortunate to grow up with great artists and I am always looking for something new. I run into this song. Mayer takes the most powerful emotion and a situation that almost everyone can relate to. He then translates it to lyrics with complete color and delivers with music that hits with emotion and pure entertainment. Exploring his other songs, I am excited by his music and future potential of Mayer life experiences in musical form.



Grass is usually not greener | Reviewer: Phillip | 10/24/07

This song is most definitly about staying with someone because he knows its good and not about envy this song is about a girl who hurt him and she left him only to realize he was right for her all along he knew the whole time how perfect they were:
So go and drift away from me
Adopt some new philosophy
That doesn't hold the two of us in mind
Move into someone else's place
Stare into some other's eyes
But slowly only come to realize

That you didn't need another kind of green to know

he's talking about how she will know like he does that even tho she thought the grass was greener and left him she will come back after she "slowly only comes to realize"



theres no envy here | Reviewer: taylor | 8/28/07

there is no way he's talking about envy it doesn't even matter if the title is another kind of green. he's saying that nobody's perfect but he's found the person that he's been happiest with and doesn't want to risk losing that by tring to find someone even better.



disagree. | Reviewer: kk | 8/26/07

this song is so NOT about envy. its about the grass is greener. why would "I don't need envy" or "another kind of envy" "to know im on the right side with you" make sense?

its all about the grass is greener. he doesn't need to break up and be with another person to realize he was right with her.

"you're not the perfect hand but i don't hit on nineteen"
thats alluding to blackjack by the way....

hes saying she's not perfect but he wouldn't risk her. think of the cards and it makes more sense. you dont want to ask for more cards when you have 19 which is a good hand just so you can try for the perfect hand but end up busting. it all ties in with the theme that he doesn't want to risk losing her for the more perfect girl he might find. he knows he on the right side with hher.



Actually.. | Reviewer: BC | 7/13/07

It's not about the grass is greener, it's about having envy for something. Green for Envy. From that, you should put it together.
