lyrics

MAKE THE SMALL THINGS PRETTY
(lyrics: David Greenberger, music: Chandler Travis)

She drives away, saddened by the things that won't stop falling down
Road’s turned to mud, barely still a road, at least it goes away
Hats never off, faded banners mark lost time going round and round
The glares, the growls, she doesn’t cower and she's never been afraid

Oh how she likes to let the big things slide, how nice
All covered up, make the small things pretty
Inside, outside, inside

What do they know, all those busybodies making everything such bother
She gets so mad, it saddens her when no one seems to right their wrongs
Can’t look away, she only looks closer so it looks like water
Put things away, she feels better when it’s all where it belongs

Oh how she likes to keep it all inside, how nice
All covered up, make the small things pretty
Look away, look away, look away

Lights flashing by, sweet sounds in the air that never catch her fancy
Distracted? No, she never falls for whistles and bells
Nothing can tempt, she shrugs off kisses, wine and candy
She knows her mind, keeps to herself, there’s no one that she needs to tell
