Song Description

Country/folk ballad that talks about recovery and change.

Story Behind the Song

recovering from the end of a long relationship and suddenly turning the corner and feeling detached enough t move on



I could spend a million coins
Found in my garden
On paying off guilt
Knock them down like fairground ducks
You miss some
You win some
But all you can do
Is shoot

Someone drew it to run down this alley
Someone ran it on bearings of steel
But my old love does not have me for quarry
I've made myself a trap for my wheels

So go now, turn around
You're wasting your time here, I've nothing to say
I talked more when I was with you
But I regret much that I said

[inst break]

Round this corner is unchartered territory
Empty houses could not be more quiet;
I'm tired of trying my luck with this unnfairground gallery
Prizeless, unnerved

So close down the curtains and send them all on
To bother some other town
Close down the caravan carrying strangeness
That seems somehow tawdry and dull
Close down the girls with the fortunes
Blank out my hands, there's no meaning there
Close down the lights at the edges
That promised to change me to something more fair...
