Unlucky Corduroy Soul

The first time she showed up
You couldn’t believe it
She gave you such comfort
You could barely receive it

She covered your limbs
The next time you met
And you noticed her holes
Had no fixin’ yet

Unlucky corduroy soul
Brown like the color of copper
Losing all sense of control
Gone and you can’t even stop her

She’s the one she’s the only
She’s the softest one you’ve ever known
She’s half torn and half mended
From the start to the end
She’s your unlucky corduroy soul

The last time she left
You locked the door
Now you’re worried that she
She ain’t got the keys anymore
