about

A dustbowl porch style tune with fringes of melancholy paint a stark picture of disillusionment. Through hints of despair, glistens a chorus of empowerment and a woman digging deep for her pride and self worth.

lyrics

There use to be some symmetry to that picture that hangs on the wall
The carpet's bare, there's no one there and the ceiling is starting to fall
These rusted pipes are killing me and I can see that you're starting to pine
You use to see the good in me
Well I guess it was a matter of time

Now you want to shine me up like a penny
And roll me around like a stone
Carry me around in your pocket 'till you get home

There use to be a willow tree that would hang there weepy and sad
You use to say we'd leave someday and that the
only luck left here was bad
The trip we made across the fruited plains and the mountains majesty
Couldn't conquer the Great Divide
I could see how you were looking at me

You want to shine me up like a penny
And roll me around like a stone
Carry me around in your pocket 'till you get home
Now you want to shine me up like a penny
And roll me around like a stone
Carry me around like a locket take me home
