She grew up just north of privileged
Where pink and perfect were sold
A cheap guitar and a shooting star
In Pensacola we watched as she drew wings of gold

She'll take you east out of San Bernardino
Straight up to 129
A simple dare and a secret square
In the casino we laughed as nightfall lit up the sky

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart
For your heart

She sings the song that she wrote me
I've got it stuck in my head
Broadway and Main and a ticket to Spain
She quotes the pillow queen and makes the trundle bed

She said she'd like to see Dale Dauntless
And the Double-D ranch
A steeplechase and a lipstick trace
Dressed up like honeybees and we're taking a chance

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart
For your heart

There are ten plagues of Egypt
Nine planets that circle the sun, we've got
Eight great ways to get the girl you want
Seven virtues, minus the one, there are
Six ways to lose your wallet
Five pillars of Islam
Four Pavement songs that are kind of long
Three laws of motion, and then there's
Two - me and you
And there's just
One way we can solve this
Try and agree on the fifteen decisive battles of the world
Fancy soap in the soap dish

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart

Well, don't you see?
Glitter and twang
She's out to
Glitter and twang for your heart
For your heart

    General Comment"some of this stuff i think is a reference to indiepop stuff"

    What's "ten plagues of Egypt"? A Band? (STOP! I'm kidding!)

    This song is so beautifully restrained. I like the countdown song because it's lyrically clunky rather than being over polished and too clever. The countdown reminds me of "Multiplication/Schoolhouse Rock", especially when they sing "Two" and the line "Try and agree on the fifteen decisive battles of the world..."

    Dang this song is addictively sweet...I keep hittin' replay.

    General Commentsome of this stuff i think is a reference to indiepop stuff (not really a stretch for tullycraft). "ticket to spain" is a cub song, secret square is a side project of the drummer from apples in stereo, etc. and "pensacola: wings of gold" is an old cheesy tv show.
