All I left behind should come as no surprise

To me since I fell through the black hole of your eyes

Only little things inconsequential I could say

Of all I left behind with you along the lost highway

Silver earrings in Wichita

Beaded moccasions in Tonopah

But I had you so

I just let them go

The flannel shirt I wore to keep me from the cold

When we drove from Boston all the way to Buffalo

The leather boots I bought so many miles ago

I took them off to follow you into the Ohio

Never did my armor feel so thin

Silk was all I had between me and your skin

Like Waterloo

I lost that too

And the golden bracelet with my father's name inscribed

On the back by the one who loved him all her life

The way I too

Could have loved you

The Spanish shawl I put across the broken shade

Of the lamp that lit the room

That last night near Coeur d'Alene

Only little things inconsequential I could say

Of all I left behind with you along the lost highway

Of all I left behind
