Album: Stone Temple Pilots (2010)
  • Maver with her lucky bonnet
    She used to paint her flowers on it
    She keeps her memories on a turnstile
    'Cause she's superstitious
    She thought she'd be famous
    And tell me if I'm wrong
    But I think she still just likes to play them
    Yeah and maybe you'll be lucky enough
    To hear her sing on Sunday
    Oh Maver

    Maver and her bonnet
    Streaks of life upon it
    Betting on the ponies
    So things could get easier
    Just praying on a easy peace for her
    Oh Maver

    She was a true blue-blooded traveler
    She left her home post for the West Coast
    With a guitar and a bar of soap for 'ol San Francisco
    And a fool hearted head of hope
    Well she landed in a flat
    With some fellas that were lucky to meet her
    'Cause she could play the six-string better than
    Those macho pendejos
    So Maver

    Maver and her bonnet
    Streaks of life upon it
    Betting on the ponies
    So things could get easier
    Just praying on a easy peace for her

    How many nights did you make it without it?
    Oh
    How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
    Oh

    How many nights did you make it without it?
    Oh
    How many lines on your face have paved your way in stone?
    Oh

    Maver and her bonnet
    Streaks of life upon it
    Betting on the ponies
    So things could get easier
    Just praying on a easy peace for her
    Just praying on a easy peace for her
    Oh Maver
    Oh Maver

  • Mdcny from Rochester, Nyknowing addiction at a personal addiction, and being a fan of STP from the beginning, both musically and lyrically I am so impressed with Scott's writings on this record and its so cool to just read that its recognized by the band-or maybe its just cool that I felt and noticed it and it being confirmed. Im really blown away by the lyrics and music on this record. Its slowly growing to be my favorite record of all times.. To me its The Doors-The Doors, GNR Appetite for Destruction and now STP's 2110 release. Just beautiful stuff and I think if I was younger it would be different. I believe growing up has something to do with it and this record to me is like perfect for where Im at. I just couldn't say enough about it..
