  • So can these shoes take me to
    Who I was before
    I was stabbing my sticks into
    A vulnerable earth

    And I can almost out run you
    And those stalking memories
    Did I somehow become you
    Without realizing

    Found a little patch of heaven now
    So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
    'Cause I'm working my way back
    I'm working my way back to me again
    Not every girl is a pearl
    With these ruby slippers
    With these ruby slippers
    So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
    In the sand, in the sand
    Turn
    Turn
    Turn

    And there are forces of conflict
    Taking portions of my mind
    In whose realm laced with trickery
    The fragments I must find
    And I can almost out run you
    And those stalking memories
    Did I somehow become you
    Without realizing
    Found a little patch of heaven now
    So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
    'Cause I'm working my way back
    I'm working my way back to me again
    Not every girl is a pearl
    With these ruby slippers
    With these ruby slippers
    So then I'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
    in the sand, Turn
    Turn, turn, turn

    Not every girl is popular
    Popular
    Popular
    Not every girl is a pearl
    With these ruby slippers
    With these ruby slippers
    So then I 'm gonna turn oysters in the sand
    In the sand
    In the sand
    Turn
    Turn
    Turn
    Turn
