Song Description

This is a country waltz with more sophisticated Jazz harmonies. It is wistful and hopeful at the same time.

Story Behind the Song

This is about a character Steven Kolpak knew who had everything and took that one hit of cocaine and it sent her on a consuming downward spiral.

Lyrics

You were the belle of the Ball
Drinking Champagne
And all your friends that you knew could depend on your name
You were so bright and clever
a country club queen,
but some things are never quite what they seem.
Some blame your money for your sudden change
Some blame it on a mysterious
old flame,
But they're just playing guessing games since you
dwindle down to the bits,
yeah, the bits of cocaine.
And you settle for scraps that
fell from the table
And you eat them up if you are
able.
Everything is still there just
for the taking,
But you're spending more money
than you're making.
You're going broke and I've heard slightly insane
Since you've dwindled on
down to the bits of cocaine...
cocaine...cocaine.
