Song Description

Some of the strongest memories are of events that just happened along the way. Not the big headline events like weddings, holidays, etc. but by experiences that just happened along the way.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song with Broadjam's "No Repeat" challenge in the 6-pack competition. I hope it qualifies. If not I really enjoyed making the song and it has become a favorite of mine.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I like the lyrics, it's good love song if it was a love song.

    - The Poet

I love the specificity of the story and the personality of the singer. And the distinctive tone of the writing. Drew me right in.

    - John Forster
Lyrics

JUNK DRAWER
JEFF RAUSCHL
©2012


HERE'S A MATCHBOOK
FROM SO HOTEL
WE STAYED AT
ALONG THE WAY
WHEN OUR CAR BROKE DOWN
AND STRANDED US
FOR TWO DAYS
IN THAT SMALL TOWN
WITH ONE TRAFFIC LIGHT
AND A LIQUOR STORE
A MOOSE LODGE
AND A LUTHERAN CHURCH

I DON'T KNOW
WHERE WE WERE GOING
WHEN WE LANDED THERE
BUT I REMEMBER
HOW WE LAID IN BED
IN THAT CHEAP HOTEL
AND WATCHED OLD MOVIES
FOR TWO DAYS STRAIGHT
LIKE "OLD YELLER"
"TRUE GRIT"
"AND 3:10 TO YUMA"
AND WE DIDN'T CARE

WE ATE PIZZA
DRANK BEER
AND WE MADE LOVE
I STILL REMEMBER THAT

IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE
A SPECIAL MEMORY
JUST A STOP ALONG THE WAY
THERE'S NO PHOTOGRAPHS
JUST A MATCHBOOK
IN THE BACK
OF THE JUNK DRAWER
I FOUND TODAY

SITTING NEXT TO THAT CORN PIPE
I WON AT THAT COUNTY FAIR
WE WENT TO ESCAPE MY SISTERS HOUSE
WE WERE VISITING
HER HUSBAND DRANK TOO MUCH TANQUERAY
WORDS WERE SAID BETWEEN THEM
AND THEY NEEDED SPACE
WE WOUND UP ON THE MIDWAY
PAST THE FERRIS WHEEL
THE COW BARN
I WON A TEDDY BEAR
THAT'S LONG SINCE
BEEN GIVEN TO GOODWILL
OR A CHURCH BAZAAR
WE HELD HANDS ON THE CAROUSEL
AND WE KISSED IN
THE HOUSE OF MIRRORS
I STILL REMEMBER THAT

I DON'T KNOW HOW THAT BECAME
A PART OF OUR HISTORY
JUST A SIDE ROAD ALONG THE WAY
THERE'S NO SCRAPBOOK PAGES
JUST A CORN-COB PIPE IN THE BACK
OF THE JUNK DRAWER

AND NOW YOU'RE GONE
YOU'RE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE
YOU'RE GONE GONE GONE GONE GONE
YEAH YOU'RE GONE

WELL THERE'S A LOT OF LITTLE THINGS
IN THAT JUNK DRAWER
LIKE THAT RIBBON THAT YOU WORE
IN YOUR HAIR
THE DAY WE FOUND THAT STRAY CAT
YOU NAMED HIM BELVEDERE

AND A BROKEN STRAND OF BEADS
THAT YOU HUNG ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE
THE NIGHT THAT I PROPOSED
AND YOU SAID YES
WITH A TEAR ROLLING DOWN YOUR CHEEK

AND A MAGNET
FROM THAT CHICKEN WING PLACE
THAT I LIKE SO MUCH
UNTIL I CHOKED ON THAT BONE
YOU SLAPPED ME ON MY BACK
AND SAVED ME
THOUGH I LOOKED SO STUPID
ON MY KNEES
OUT OF BREATH
YOU WERE MY EVERYTHING

AND NOW I'M JUST
SO ALONE SO ALONE
I'M ALL ALONE
YOU LEFT ME
IN THE BACK
OF THIS JUNK DRAWER
SO ALONE
I'M JUST A LITTLE THING
IN THE BACK
OF THIS JUNK DRAWER
AND SO ALONE
