"Pennyless" as written by Tiffany Arbuckle Lee and Matthew Ryan Bronleewe....
Blind soul lost in Chicago
She fell asleep under a bridge
Drowning out the sound of her sorrow
She's finding it hard to exist

She keeps running into herself
Hoping to find somebody else
She keeps running into herself
Hoping that she'll get out of wonderland

Fame and fortune didn't become her
So she says pennyless
Needing so much more than tomorrow
As she stares at the scars on her wrist

She keeps running into herself
Hoping to find somebody else
She keeps running into herself
Hoping that she'll find somebody better

    General CommentIronically this song was written about a male relative of Tiffany's. She just wrote it from a female perspective.

    General CommentI agree with all of you. Like you all said, I think it's about someone not liking who they are as a person. In the line "Hoping that she'll get out of wonderland", I'm thinking it could mean "when will things make sense?" Or when will I not feel so lost anymore?" It's obvious that the girl in the song cuts herself, maybe she hates herself for doing it?

    I think it's very easy for people to identify with this song. Everyone has had times when they don't like themselves and they wonder when things will get better and they won't feel so lost/when they'll get out of this "wonderland".

    Great song.
