Bankers’ Boxes

By: Laura Alford

Stealing copy paper boxes
From the recycle bin
Packing up my kitchen
Never eating here again

Loading up the u-haul
Shoving it all in
Now I have to live with
Never kissing you again

It’s a long, long road
To California
It’s a long, long road
From where I’ve been
It’s a long, long road
To California
I need bankers’ boxes
To keep these feelings in

Running down the beach
Sailing in the wind
The past is locked up tight
Never losing me again

It’s a long, long road
To California
It’s a long, long road
From where I’ve been
It’s a long, long road
To California
Where the bankers’ boxes
I kept those feelings in?
