Then What
by Clay Walker



I 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
And 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, oh then what
I ain't sayin' that lookin's a crime
I've done my share from time to time
It don't mean that you got to take that leap
When you're standin' on the brink
Before you jump you gotta step back and think
There's a price for every promise you don't keep
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
And 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, oh then what
But do what you want do what you wish
It's your life but remember this
There's bound to be some consequences
For sneakin' under certain fences
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
And 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, oh then what
