Almost Everything I Need

(The Divorcée on Avenue C)

LYRICS:
Who needs a lot of space?
Who needs a lot of light?
I’ll get myself a chair
A pad and pen to write
A ficus for the corner
And some pictures hung just right
And I have almost everything I need

I’ll take some wooden crates
And make a makeshift bar
There’s an antiques fair in Rhinebeck
I’ll just borrow someone’s car
Some curtains for the window
And some daisies in a jar
And I have almost everything I need

So it’s a bit dark
So it’s a bit damp
I’ll just close my eyes,
Pretending I’m at camp
It’s going to be great
It’s going to be fun
With a prayer for good luck
And a bucket of Windex
This room will be perfect
For one

The smell of baking bread
Some good books I can read
A fire escape for dreaming
And a heart that’s finally freed
A brand new life without you
I’m a happy girl indeed
And I have almost everything I need
I have almost everything I need.
