Hungry Suitcase Lyrics

by Time

(Love stories they end in airports)

Look how hungry that suitcase is
I'm gonna pack my love and chris
I'm a go far away, where the skies are grey
And turn em blue with thoughts of you
And if it rains, I'll water the weeds
Cause I believe anything can succeed
If life give me lemons I'll make meringue pie
I'm still waiting for my train to take me to the sky
Sent her a telegram and said I was gone
Said I'd explain it all in one of my songs
She had to leave me cause I had a job
But if I don't have a job then I don't have money
And with no money there's no food in the stomach
So either way your love life plummets
But that's a lie, she's with me everyday
From the grocery store to where the little kids play
She's on my paper and shes in my pen
She's my lover and my best friend
Sent her a postcard from up the street
Said I'd be gone 40 hours for 52 weeks
I love you, I'm so happy, say it to the mirror
I'm coming home, with my paycheck as a souvenir
I love you, I'm so happy, say it to the mirror
I'm coming home, with freetime as a souvenir
I love you, I'm so happy, say it to the mirror

I got one love called music
And every time she made me cry
She wrote me a song and apologized
(My suitcase has hearts in it)

I picked out the hearts from all my runts
Filled up my suitcase I'll be gone for months
She was crying ink, I wiped her face with a loose leaf
Fighting my emotions like I was Bruce Lee
Sometimes it takes a loose tooth to see
Everything truthfully
I put the U in truth with a turn
Asked if could buy a vowel as the tires burned
I jumped off the treble clef and opened the D
Double O R to see where she could B
I lifted up her skirt and put my hand on her keys
I hit a couple C notes followed by a G
I tried to put some sunshine in her blue note
But Donald Byrd flew away for new hope
I gotta work but I gotta sing
But I gotta sleep at night cause I'm a human being (bang)
We used to share toothbrushes
Now we share the truth about other crushes
I love it, it's more real than cancer
But it's more faker than a Hollywood dancer
But if it wasn't for her then I wouldn't be alive
And I'd probably have everything stuck inside
She gives me freedom and she gives me pain
But when you mix that with love it's all the same
Every time we break up we grow back stronger
What I call single's just a song to her
I promise I'm a make it, we'll tour the world
Me and my music, you're a women not a girl

(You're a women not a girl)
(My suitcase has hearts in it)
(I'm coming home, with hearts in me)

I got one love called music
And every time she made me cry
She wrote me a song and apologized
(My suitcase has hearts in it)

(You want to know what I respect about women?
It's that they can fall asleep next to a man without
Any lust)

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega

Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
