Lyrics

I saved a little keepsake
Years ago before we had it all
I found it by accident
Way up high on an empty bedroom shelf
In a room I rarely go in
In a house that’s too big for myself
When I found this little keepsake
An empty room seemed to crowd right up

The picture told a story
Spirit of youthful foolishness
and words can lose their meaning
Like the faded ink she scribbled on the back
On a count of three your supposed to smile
But she blinked like when I asked her not to go
If a keepsake tells a story
Safe to say some are better left untold

That little keepsakes in the trash
Didn’t take up much room but is better where it’s at
Letting go is always best
I didn’t get this far only to go back

I hear the second-hand ticking on my kitchen wall
It’s wired to move forward
There’s no moving it back at all

I left that house a while ago
Roots grow only as deep as what’s in your heart
That keepsake told a story
With an ending that would be where I’d start
This road I’m on got wider
It holds my weight and I can spread my wings
There’s plenty of room at my side
For whatever you might want to bring

That little keepsakes in the trash
Didn’t take up much room but it got me where I’m at
Letting go is always best
I didn’t get this far only to go back
