"Traveling Light" as written by and Johnny/mundy Mercer....
Three years or a lifetime
Three words that just might have come too soon
Three hours from somewhere
I might have ended up with you

Hold me like a river
Hold me like a string tied to a balloon
You get what you're given
At any moment a moment of truth

All my life I'm traveling light
Been living in a sky
I'll float I'll fade I'll carry away
Til you pull me down and think of me sometimes

I'm sorry for leaving
I'm sorry for all I could not do
You knew it was coming
Maybe in some ways I did too

The keys by the bedside
And bags in the hall


I'm searching for something in the ether of this mess
Riding above these missing pieces, leaves me weightless

    General CommentSounds like she's easy-breezy and incapable of making deep connections and some poor soul wants her to. Too bad for him, she's not changing. Even the melody of the song is airy and light, very fun to sing along to :)
