Blind Willies - One Dime Down
One dime down On the ageless face With its surgical charm Its style and its grace Look how it moves without any pain There’s light in the eyes But it’s dark and it rains An amputated oath For the miracle of sight What God has given us Will finally be set right With hands cool as the clay That handles with ease The most clever and sharpest of knives To have ever been dreamed It's one dime down All memory’s erased From the skin the teeth the hair History can be replaced Mark down everything That you think you should keep But remember perfection remains One cent out of reach Oh you’re a pretty one Delicate and fine Please, please favor me With a thorn upon your vine One dime down And the wait won’t be too long All you need is faith In the promise of my song You are special to me And there’s nothing that isn’t deserved Step into my tent for something More precious than words There’s no bottom to the eyes Hungry scars upon the faces Of those who’ve come to stare And vanish without a trace Yes they came in the morning And waited far into the night For a Savior to fill them With riches and beauty and light It’s one dime down For anything you’ll confess Be it love or lies or hate Unburden yourself and rest Like a snake you may shed any scales That have weathered and cracked Your new skin will make up For whatever it was that you lacked You can sing, you can smile, you can grin You can dance, you can laugh For only one dime and that’s all Just don’t ask for it back Oh you’re a pretty one Delicate and fine Please, please favor me With a rose upon your vine
