Look in your hair young love,
I have left you a present you will not find unless you look.
I have left a part of me there.
Don't be surprised when I end up never leaving again.
Because of so many pieces of myself I have hidden on you when we say goodbye,
one day we won't say goodbye.

I know by the trail.
But I know now.
I know by the trail.
That I'll leave behind,
that I've left behind.

You don't know this but I walk around a grotesque mess when you're far.
Missing limbs hidden in your home but I pay no mind, I don't ever feel complete unless I'm where you are.

I know by the trail.
But I know now I know by the trail.
That I'll leave behind,
that I've left behind.

I can't lie,
I miss seeing your feelings for me leak through your eyes.
I'm a gross wreck and need my body.
And I know just where those pieces sleep.

I know by the trail.
But I know now.
I know by the trail.
That I'll leave behind.
That I've left behind.

    General Commentit sounds like the song is about him leaving someone all the time. he seems to hiding pieces of his body on the person so that he has a reason to come back. He's leaving a trail of his own body parts back to the person. he seems to be dealing with the effects of missing apendages and people looking at him but he doesn't care because he only feels complete when he's with the person he left behind. when he gets back to that person he will be able to get the body parts back and be complete again.
