As sure as the floor 'neath my toes,
And somehow not surprised,
That I was superimposed
Somehow in this life.
And if my friends and my foes
Would just drop me a line
That'd be nice

You see love is a drink
That goes straight to my head
And time is a lover
And I'm caught in her stead
And the sentiment there follows me
Straight to my bed
Through the night

I've got my life in a suitcase
I'm ready to run run run away
I got no time cause I'm always
Trying to run run run away
Cause everyday *when it* feels like it's only a game
I've got my life in a suitcase, a suitcase, a suitcase
A suitcase

What could be an anchor here,
With a storm on the rise,
When you never meant to see so clear,
When smoke gets in your eyes
And the man in the moon
Never makes his replies understood

I've got my life in a suitcase
I'm ready to run run run away
I got no time cause I'm always
Trying to run run run away
Cause everyday *when it* feels like it's only a game
I've got my life in a suitcase, a suitcase, a suitcase

For a moment I was warm and the world made sense
For a moment in this storm made of consequence

I've got my life in a suitcase
I'm ready to run run run away
I got no time cause I'm always
Trying to run run run away
Cause everyday *when it* feels like it's only a game
I've got my life in a suitcase, a suitcase, a suitcase
A suitcase

    General CommentThis is definitely one of my favorite songs off of You Are My Sunshine.

    I agree with le_savant, I think it's about being lost.
