Then what?

Then What?
by Clay Walker

Well, I’ve 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 anyone’s gonna trust.
Then what? Where you gonna turn
When you can’t turn back for the bridges you’ve burned,
And fate can’t wait to kick you in the butt?
Then what?
Whoa, then what?

Well, I ain’t saying that looking’s a crime:
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 a price for ever promise you don’t keep.

Whoa, 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’ve burned,
And fate can’t wait to kick you in the butt?
Then what?
Whoa, then what?

Do want you want, do want you wish.
It’s your life – but remember this:
There’s bound to be some consequences,
Sneaking under other fences.

Whoa, 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’ve burned,
And fate can’t wait to kick you in the butt?
Then what?
Oh, then what?
