lyrics

She sells her shoes, pierces her nose
throws away his favorite clothes
And still thinks of him,

She tells herself it's not the same
Gets real drunk slurs your name
And still thinks for him

She's gone downhill but seems like fun
Sleeps in late with anyone
And still out-dreams him

Here come the pictures of salt
I miss the pictures of salt

Just pretend it's green outside
So's her courage and her pride
And still she thinks of him

What did you make from a man
A mountain mole or Suzanne
And still she thinks for him

A little jab, it's no big deal
I lost my arm, now I don't feel
And still she out dreams him

Here come the pictures of salt
I miss the pictures of salt
Mommy's moral tossed wayside
Little jabs when we all cried
And still I write for him

So when will the salt come back?
The parties proper and turning black
I balanced all my little shoes
And the same things keep getting used
The lonely joke I won't let go
The last one in's the first to know

Tossing lines To the wind
If you can't You rescind
And still thinks of him
And still thinks of him

Where are my pictures of salt? Where is all the salt?
Why can't I please be let back inside the salt?
