Ivory Tower

Songfacts®:

  • The second track on Lynsey's debut album Surprise, this beautiful, yet wistful, song is all about being a trophy bride or girlfriend and how she would rather be penniless and out in the rain but happy. One of Lynsey's most popular songs amongst her fans, the lyrics are eloquent and Lynsey's girlish voice complements perfectly the recorder and piano as well as the song's subject. >>
