Stephenville

   Housewives trying to recapture their youth by wearing floral print and suede

   Fixing their hairdos with PC, chemical-free hairspray
   Martha Stewart taught them to make on TV
   I was raised a farmgirl
   I'm too far from home, all alone on the road
   Trying to figure out who I am now the the stardust has turned to sand
   And the sand has turned to stone on the starmaking machine

   I'm 25 years old
   That ain't the end but it sure ain't where I began

   And my daddy, he wrote songs and he broke colts[?]
   And he went back to school to get a degree
   Now he teached music to kids, he taught music to me
   And this Alaskan girl was living in Stephenville, Texas
   Yes, you guess it, I moved here because I fell in love with a man
   And I moved his ex-old lady's things out of the closet
   The same closet I had to move my things back in
   It didn't make me feel that great, as if to demonstrate
   Everything's temporary given enough time
   But hey, I've got nothing to lose
   I'm a singer for crowds, I'm a writer of songs
   Hey Mom, look, I'm an entertainer
   I'm a modern day troubadour trying to find justice with six strings
   Trying to make the world make sense out of me
   Trying to be loved completely, trying to love honestly
   Trying to find a decent high noon cup of tea
   In another shitty hotel
   I'm trying to listen to the leaves speak
   Trying to steal secrets from fishes in the creek
   Trying to figure out who I am
   A singer, a pretty bad cook, maybe a good mom
   What will it be?

   And I'm 25 years old
   That ain't the end but it sure ain't where I began

   I'm trying to figure out who I am
   But there's no hand to hold, no Doctor Martin Luther King
   There's just syncophants
   And the mindlessness on TV or in the magazines
   On the latest ways to behave
   So why not follow me, the blond bombshell deity?
   I'll sell you neat ideas without big words
   And a little bit of cleavage to help wash it all down
   Hey everybody thought ? was a clown
   And that ain't gonna be me

   And I'm 25 years old
   That ain't the end but it sure ain't where I began
   And I'm 25 years old
   That ain't the end but it sure ain't where I began
   Guess that just means I'm in Texas
