Kinks style foxtrot through your sorrows with the swells.


One too many broken pens,
Photographs from who knows when,
Rubber bands and paperclips,
Pencils that have lost their tips,
Pennies that no longer shine,
An old watch that can't keep time,
I haven't touched a single draw,
It's all the way it was before,

You left and now my life's a mess,
And I'm not sure if I can get rid of your desk,

Buttons from your favorite blouse,
Keys to your grandmother's house,
An old beat-up Chevy fuse,
Compacts that have no more rouge,
Ticket stubs and greeting card,
With you such kind regards,
Envelopes and Elmer's glue,
And letters that I sent to you,

Now I know love can pass, but what about the trash,
And what about the memories that last,

But today your father hauled,
You desk away and I recalled,
He told me it was for the best,
So why'm I feeling so depressed,
