lyrics

Elspeth Veronica, named after nobody,
nobody that you'd know
Sits very quietly, shows you her pedigree,
smiles when you need it most

How could you not fall in love with a girl
who's worth her weight in big, blue eyes?

Elspeth Veronica, wide-eyed and tie-dyed,
sings at the coffee shop downtown
Sings very quietly, but if you listen carefully,
you'll hear the beating of the sweetest heart

Elspeth Veronica dreams of a house with me
with turrets and stained glass
Books in the library, smoke in the double chimney,
bunnies in the backyard

Elspeth Veronica, not one for subtlety,
grabs your esophagus and squeezes
Loves unconditionally, blames the economy,
curls up with Dostoyevsky on my comfy chair

ER

Less country than Robbie Fulks, less rock-and-roll than Steve Poltz, less uninhibited than Rhett Miller, less political than Billy Bragg, less fastidious than Josh Ritter... something for every clever song lover!
