"Maver" as written by and Robert Emile Deleo Dean Deleo....
Maver with her lucky bonnet
She used to paint her flowers on it
She keeps her memories on a turnstile
'Cause she's superstitious
She thought she'd be famous
And tell me if I'm wrong
But I think she still just likes to play them
Yeah and maybe you'll be lucky enough
To hear her sing on Sunday
Oh Maver

Maver and her bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Oh Maver

She was a true blue-blooded traveler
She left her home post for the West Coast
With a guitar and a bar of soap for 'ol San Francisco
And a fool hearted head of hope
Well she landed in a flat
With some fellas that were lucky to meet her
'Cause she could play the six-string better than
Those macho pendejos
So Maver

Maver and her bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her

How many nights did you make it without it?
Oh
How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
Oh

How many nights did you make it without it?
Oh
How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
Oh

Maver and her bonnet
Streaks of life upon it
Betting on the ponies
So things could get easier
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Just praying on a easy peace for her
Oh Maver
Oh Maver
Oh Maver

    General CommentWeiland used the song to tell a story of a girl who headed to San Francisco to be a star and ended up betting all her money on the ponies. Dean found the song to have a "country-gospel vibe" and described the music as having two distinctive sonic layers. "If you listen to the backbeat and check out what the bass and drums are doing, the drums are very distorted, very big and broken up, as is the bass. Yet the rest of the song is very beautiful and ethereal. Great piano playing, too."

    General Comment i read alot of reviews on Stone Temple Pilot's new self titled album before it was released hoping to be able to grasp any bit of information on the new album..... i remember reading that scott was trying to break away from his "self-obsessed" writing and try to become more of a story teller... this is one of those songs they were talking about where he tells about story... ^^^ pretty much sums it up
