"What Was Left Behind" as written by Ronald Carson Cox, David Vassalotti and Patrick Brady....
What I wanted wasn't what I saw
I was chasing a midnight vagabond
Though brave, I couldn't stop the throes from coming on
With each day I let my ego die in my own arms
It came apart
I let down all my guard
Like the way you do and the way
Oh the shapes, they change, but the design stays the same
You only know how to burn
To welcome a stranger
Call them your own and kiss them without looking
To tie a string and to walk without warranty

You're just sad and lonely

When your heart beats like any others
When your body sleep alone your mind is racing
You've been here before, now let's do it again
This time your mind starts to wonder
Learn how to sleep without any company
You're still a young man
