  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track from the American alternative country singer-songwriter Lucinda Williams' tenth studio album. The song describes people that upend social norms, including a girl who sells flowers on the street setting an example of how to live. Williams told American Songwriter she'd scribbled that particular image down on a napkin. "There was this young girl who used to come in and sell roses in this Mexican restaurant we go in. She's not just some girl selling roses. She has a family. She has a life."
