IF I HAD A DIME

If I Had a Dime_3kx3k_WithText.jpg

LYRICS:

Hey Polly, I think there might be something wrong with me,

Too many stains just like an old sheet, hanging out in the breeze,

Tongue-tied I tried to save all our pleasantries,

But if I had a dime for every lie, man I’d be rolling in change…

 

Hey Polly, I think there might be something really wrong with you,

Then again, I like to pretend that I know things that I can’t prove,

Wide-eyed, I’m at the point where I have nothing to lose,

So come along, we can bond in our small, naive little room…

 

Now wouldn’t that be nice,

Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?

 

Ah hell, I feel a mighty wind blowing out through the leaves,

You spilled it out, took it back, such a half-assed apology,

Tongue-tied, I tried to say all those things that I mean,

And if I had the time, I’d sew up all of my open seams…

 

Now wouldn’t it be nice,

Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?

Inspired by the ending of a longtime friendship, "If I Had a Dime" reflects on a conversation between our narrator and a character named Polly. What starts out as self examination, quickly turns into a blame-game with the song capitalizing on the emotional disunion we often find ourselves in when trying to accept the duality of a disagreement.
