lyrics

"Pocket Knife"
Song written by David John Wellnitz
Arrangement by Heels To The Hardwood

Plaid skirt doesn't understand why
This keeps happening in her life
Knocked back by life's hurdles
Year by year, day by day
Just getting harder
Them ditches they're just getting wider

Well she better learn
How to untie her ties
Or buy herself a pocket knife

To cut cut, cut away
All these memories that keep binding us, everyday
These memories that keep binding us, time to break away

Patty doesn't feel too accomplished
Working world instead of college
Everyday stands on this stage
Singing down to you
You know her three boys won't disobey, her DNA
Three boys won't disobey, her DNA

Sean's got a new career
Yeah talks about it everywhere
I hope that someday to be successful as him
You know my dreams change on the year
Hope you don't think I'm weird
That a six strings, a lonely road is a tie worth tying

I better learn how to untie my ties
How to untie my ties
Or buy myself a pocket knife

To cut cut, cut away
All these memories that keep binding us, everyday
These memories that keep binding us, time to break away
