emmylou harris – all i left behind lyrics

(emmylou harris/kate en anna mccarrigle)

all i left behind should come as no surprise
to me since i fell through the black hole of your eye
only little things inconsequential i could say
of all i left behind with you along the lost highway
silver earrings in wichita
beaded moccasins in tonapah

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 gold bracelet with my fathers 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 cour 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
