lyrics

Grains of truth inside your humor
Grains of salt stuck in your eye
I heard the stories and the rumors
But no, I did not realize

Your life is odder than a novel
Yet more open than the great wide west
Beauty and grace could never persuade you 'cause
You're the one you'll always love the best

Grain alcohol flows to your stomach
As grainy pictures flash before your eyes
I heard the tales and could not match them
Turns out they were all fake anyway

Your life is odder than a novel
Yet more open than the great wide west
Beauty and grace could never persuade you 'cause
You're the one you'll always love the best

Come closer, closer still, and tell me
The stories of your fabled youth
Tell me not tales from when you conquered worlds
Tell me nothing but the truth

Your life is odder than a novel
Yet more open than the great wide west
Beauty and grace could never persuade you 'cause
You're the one you'll always love the best

Your life is odder than a novel
Yet more open than the great wide west
Beauty and grace could never persuade you 'cause
You're the one you'll always love the best
