Patty Griffin - Pushing Thirty lyrics

I could have been one of those wind up dolls
And have someone catch me every time I'd fall
Could have afforded to shop wherever I'd want
And spend his hard-earned money on trips to the salon
Well he wasn't such a bad guy and sleeping with him beats slinging hash
But I could never justify affection or cash

Pushing away all the pain and regrets
I filled a million bottles with all the tears
I don't stay home waiting for what ain't happened yet
And I'm pushing thirty a little harder every year

Leaves of the trees like the lines of my eyes
Considering the storm I've seen it ain't no real surprise
Sometimes on a glass of beer I think of a little girl
Trying to keep her grace as if she could see the world
I don't worry too much about those places I don't see
I know that I'm the woman that I wanted to be

So I'm pushing away all the pain and regrets
I've filled a million bottles with all of the tears
I don't stay home waiting for what ain't happened yet
And I'm pushing thirty a little harder every year

I knew I'd never take that train to the end of the line
Not with a heart full of hope and legs that work just fine
No matter who you think you're with
No matter what you think you want
You're never really more than someone and don't deserve to know

So I'm pushing away all the pain and regrets
I've filled a million bottles with all of the tears
I don't stay home waiting for what ain't happened yet
And I'm pushing thirty a little harder every year
