I Will Leave Behind... by KatMPhotography I Will Leave Behind... by KatMPhotography
Inspiration: Tom Waits and early morning sentiment...

[Yes.... it's time...]

i will leave behind all of my clothes,
i wore when i was with you,
all i need's my railroad boots, and my leather jacket,
as i say goodbye to ruby's arms,
although my heart is breaking,
i will steal away out through your blinds,
for soon you will be waking.

the morning light has washed your face,
and everything is turning blue now,
hold on to your pillow case there's nothing i can do now, as i say goodbye to ruby's arms,
you'll find another soldier,
and i swear to god by christmas,
there'll be someone else to hold you.

the only thing i'm taking
is the scarf off of your clothesline,
i'll hurry past your chest of drawers,
and your broken window chimes,
as i say goodbye
i'll say goodbye,
say goodbye to ruby's arms.

i'll feel my way down the darken hall,
and out into the morning,
the hobos at the freightyards,
have kept their fires burning,
so jesus christ this goddamn rain,
will someone put me on a train,
i'll never kiss your lips again,
or break your heart,
as i say goodbye i'll say goodbye, say goodbye
to ruby's
arms.

I was going to write a long, drawn out statement about this photo, but the only thing that came to mind was... Wow.
