Liner Notes: 

Still in progress....will post a demo, once I have tweaked the tune and lyrics the way I want.

Lyrics: 

Some people spend 10,000 bucks
for a dining room table
Some people spend their salary
For Scandinavian design
I’d rather get my table and chairs
with a story, if I’m able
Buy a couch and coffee table
that have stood the test of time

My favorite pieces around my home came from yard sales
I spent hard earned cash on a mattress for a platform bed that came free
My favorite pieces around my house have great stories
Original canvases from someone’s wedding...came freely to me

Some people spend their hard earned cash
On cheap, temporary things
Some people buy shiny matching sets
To store in a dusty glass case
Send me china from your wedding
your pristine napkins and their rings
I’ll give them meaning at my place.

My favorite pieces around my home came from yard sales
Kept a twenty year couch for twenty more, till it peacefully died on our floor
My favorite pieces around my house have great stories
Like the homemade chest from my father, and oh so much more!

Some people spend all their love
On their one and only partner
Some people throw their love away
When the spark begins to fade
I’d rather spread love about like a multimillionaire
Let each story have its care,
Healthy soil, light and shade.

My favorite people are my home, make my heart sail.
Keep the flames burning bright through the cloudy nights with shared ritual
My favorite people around my home give me stories
As we connect together or apart with love that’s mutual.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
