Stephenville

Stephenville
    by Jewel


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 teachs music to kids, he taught music to me 
And this Alaskan girl was living in Stephenville, Texas 
Yes, you guessed 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 Godard 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
