LYRICS

At first it was easy spending all my dough
And having nothing left at the end of the day
You'd tell me "We're out of beer, thought you'd like to know"
But I'd just laugh and brush it away

But then you started rough, you'd push and you'd shove
You'd leave me feeling broken and hurt
Oh, you took that shovel and you dug and you dug
And left me with a heart full of dirt.

You left me with a heart full of dirt, oooh
You left me with a heart full of dirt
Oh you took that shovel and you dug and you dug
And left me with a heart full of dirt

You were out all day, and up all night
Never even lending a hand
Oh, you'd take my lovin' and throw it away
Never caring where it might land

So I said to myself "What am I gonna do?"
And a small idea started to grow in my head
I can't spend my life getting beat down by you
I'd love you so much more if you were dead

Oh, I'd love you so much more if you were dead, oooh
I'd love you so much more if you were dead
I can't spend my life getting beat down by you
I'd love you so much more if you were dead

So early one morning you stumbled in
And passed out in the middle of the hall
I whispered "Please forgive me for I'm about to sin"
And kicked your head into the wall

Oh, now you've got a heart full of dirt, oooh
Yea now you've got a heart full of dirt
Oh, I took that shovel and I dug and I dug
And now you've got a heart full of dirt.

about

Kendall Elise Auckland, New Zealand

Alt-country/ folk darling Kendall Elise was born on the wrong side of the tracks in a town called Papakura. She has a breathtakingly beautiful voice that is offset by her often dark and personal lyrics. Her music is slow burning, foot stomping, and everything in between.

Keep your eyes peeled for her upcoming single and debut EP due early 2017
