Inspired by the ending of a longtime friendship, "If I Had a Dime" reflects on a conversation between our narrator and a character named Polly. What starts out as self examination, quickly turns into a blame-game, leaving the listener with a question rather than an answer. The song capitalizes on the emotional disunion we often find ourselves in when trying to accept the duality of a disagreement.

"If I Had a Dime" is the 1st track off of "Garden Street: The Upside".



Hey Polly, I think there might be something wrong with me,
Too many stains just like an old sheet, hanging out in the breeze,
Tongue-tied I tried to save all our pleasantries,
But if I had a dime for every lie, man I’d be rolling in change…

Hey Polly, I think there might be something really wrong with you,
Then again, I like to pretend that I know things that I can’t prove,
Wide-eyed, I’m at the point where I have nothing to lose,
So come along, we can bond in our small, naive little room…

Now wouldn’t that be nice,
Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?

Ah hell, I feel a mighty wind blowing out through the leaves,
You spilled it out, took it back, such a half-assed apology,
Tongue-tied, I tried to say all those things that I mean,
And if I had the time, I’d sew up all of my open seams…

Now wouldn’t it be nice,
Wouldn’t that be nice for a change?
