lyrics

The springs broke in two and the chassis hung low
Stuck in the mud on what used to be a road
Spitting and a cursing just to keep from crying
What is this business that’s got me dying

Whatcha gonna do with that diamond ring
Will it lift you up, will it let you sing
To tell you the truth it don't mean a thing
It's just another rock in a pile of dreams
It could never be like it was before
Elinoire

Nothing will contain this bucket of joy
The sides gonna split out and fill up the void
It’s dark as the night on that third of July
Between the flash of fireworks up in the sky

If I had my way I'd spend my last dime
on a basket for flowers and dandelion wine
I’d look forward to the memory, I’d keep it close by
As something to lean on and not hide behind
I’d walk on gilded splinters til my feet were sore
For Eliniore

If I had the means to go back in time
I’d make sure the springs were tuned and aligned
Then I’d build up a house framed in northern white pine
Adorned in red maple with laser straight lines
Then I’d swallow the key and kick down the door
For Elinoire
