Beautiful Lumps of Coal
by Plumb



 

You thought you had me all tied up in a little knot
You thought I'd go on living just like you until you asked me nicely to stop
But suprise
I'm free
I'm free
I'm Free
To be the girl you tried to steal

You thought I'd freeze outwithered and abandoned
Now you know differently that I'm gonna live much more than you ever imagined
So suprise
I'm free
I'm free
I'm free
To be the girl you tried to steal
To be the girl you tried to steal from me

It isn't every day
Someone sets you free
And gives you walking papers
To be the real thing
I'm free
I'm free
I'm free
to be the girl you tried to steal
I'm free
I'm free, yea
I'm free
To be the girl you tried to steal
To be the girl you tried to steal from me



Behind the Song:
“This is about a lot of old relationships – previous management, previous record company, old boyfriends, old friendship – and what they thought I was all about. It was in a number of relationships that dragged me in the wrong direction, and I had to say goodbye. It was so liberating because every one of these relationships was replaced by something that’s ten times better for me. I actually wrote this in the bathtub! I was humming the melody of the chorus over and over. My husband popped his head in and said, ‘Hey, are you listening to a Walkman or something?’ I said, ‘No, but could you get my tape recorder and a pen and some paper?’ So he did, and I recorded myself singing, ‘I’m free to be the girl you tried to steal from me,’ which I wrote on a little piece of paper that was wet and soggy from the bath water.” – Tiffany Arbuckle Lee (Plumb)
