a song going through my head

There's a song going through my head (long story ... maybe I'll post on it sometime) from Christian camp days, and the chorus to it went like this:

If the grass is greener on the other side
it's only 'cause they feed it and you let yours die
If there's a fence in the middle and a gate so wide,
If the grass is greener on the other side

I wish I could remember the verses, as the chorus strikes me tonight as one of those rare instances of a modern praise-chorus type song (by which I do NOT mean Iona Community music -- that's its own category, in my mind) with a message worth remembering (in contrast to songs that are pretty much just cheesy and unhelpfully romantic top-40 songs with "baby" or "darlin'" changed to "Jesus").

Anyone out there remember it?  Would it help to know that I learned it at the Forest Home conference center in Forest Falls, California?
