Gentle nagging
In the back of my head
Leaves me edgy
It’s the baggage I dread
Not stuck at the airport
Tucked under my arm
This way I can trust
It will come to no harm

But I would purposely leave
It behind if I could
Rip the heart off my sleeve
Shoved in a locker would be good
Where no one will find
Cause to be unkind
Shrug it behind,
Hide in my hood

But walking away
Isn’t the way to heal wounds
In twenty shades of grey
Bursting our balloons
And out fly the memories
Like candy from a piñata
Playing out in a semi-frieze
Every piece that matters

And that is when I know
I’ll leave the candy on the floor
And place the baggage there too
I don’t need it since I got you.


from Because We Didn't Look Back, released December 27, 2005
