She says her life is a failure
Says her pretty years are all gone
Spent with the wrong man
Who doesn’t love her anymore
She finds solace in poetry
And a sad country song
Just looking for redemption, finding a way, for a life that went wrong

She gets stoned out in Kerrville
Hanging with her Houston friends
She reads her poetry in Galveston
She likes the waves crashin’ in
Still looking for her lover
A strong man, but kinda Zen
A man who can handler her, a man who can get her, and be her best friend

(Chorus)
But there’s no timeshares for heaven
She pays a price to be free
And she worries about dying, alone with her dreams
And the wine can’t handle the lonely
When the blues come around
And her poems can’t hold her, the smoke can’t console her, when her world crashes down

She took a road trip to L.A.
She went with her best friend
Always looking for adventure
Always looking for him
A walking timeshare of heaven
But no one moves in
She’s a wildflower and free, with no one to please, she’ll be that way till her end

(Chorus)
But there’s no timeshares for heaven
She paid a price to be free
And she worries about dying
Alone on the street
And the wine can’t handle the lonely
When the blues come around
And her poems can’t hold her, the smoke can’t console her, when her world crashes down
No her poems can’t hold her, and the smoke can’t console her, on the dark side of town
