This is a song I wrote, and plan to record with my band...I guess there isn't much back story...I've been listening to alot of White Stripes lately..and this came out..so without further adeui....

goin home but noone knew
that i wasnt around
dead leaves and forgotten mail
a lil ol sack of brown.
daddy said she hadn't been long
he said look to the road and head right on
for the girl of yer dreams is gone.
the girl of your dreams is gone
girl of your dreams is gone

she said 'forget me nots'
and 'i o u's are all i have to get by
the songs ya wrote
the songs i liked
the songs that sting my eyes
i said songs that sting my eyes

the road has turned
the road is long
still my will is strong
i wrote ya a letter
and i gave my heart
just to give you a taste of
my wonderful art
as i sing this song
i said as i sing this song

[she said]'forget me nots'
and 'i o u's are all i have to get by
the songs ya wrote
the songs i liked
the songs that sting my eyes
i said songs that still sting my eyes

i took a turn
down 'lake long'
i didn't know what went wrong
didn't know what went wrong
there she was at the top of the hill
arms by her side
she stood quite still
her face was graceful
her eyes just right
i guess it must have been that light
must have been that light
than as time ticked by
arms at her side
the look in her face
about to cry
she said 'what are you doin'
"i've come so far
to deliver the letter
i wrote in the bar"
heart in hand
flat on my chest
i decided, i will give her the rest
i will give her the rest
i sang real quiet
i sang it smooth
ruffled her feathers as she began to move
and this is where

[she said]'forget me nots'
and 'i o u's are all i have to get by
the songs ya wrote
the songs i liked
the songs that sting my eyes
i said songs that sting my eyes

[she said]'forget me nots'
and 'i o u's are all i have to get by
the songs ya wrote
the songs i liked
the songs that sting my eyes
i said songs that sting my eyes

Nice song, it gives off a certain mood... It's good.
