Empty dishes still sitting where I'm gonna leave it
This lamp hasn't been lit in quite a long while
The wick doesn't reach what's left of the wax
And the rain is coming and I'm overcome

These bad newspapers, they pile up on me
Dogs gaze out the window, I know how they feel
Adventure, adventure? Or sit by the door?
Open open, sesame, I'm overcome

Figurines, dripping faucets, laundry and dust
I hate to leave this a mess but I must
Small little suitcase, small little belt
Small walking shoes and a whole life to prove

Keepsakes can be anchors and anvils and such
Like pianos and pets and the people we love
Can't change the world from this chair on my space
Spiders tag walls with their names in this place

Figurines, dripping faucets, laundry and dust
I hate to leave this a mess but I must
Small little suitcase, smaller little belt
Small walking shoes and a whole life to prove

Oh it's never a clean break when you're trying to leave
But songbirds need homes in live oak trees
