Things I Don't Need

Things I Don't Need

Nanci Griffith

This house is full of memories that aren?t mine
Pieces I thought I would clear out over time
Life takes over, I get ahead of myself, and I turn around
And I?ve filled up the shelf
With things I don?t need that wear me down
Things I don?t want but still keep around.
I woke up today and I made up my mind
From now on I?ll Leave all those things I don?t need behind

The one thing that?s not on the shelf
Is my heart since it fell
Picking it up is a thing that I never have done well
True love always seems to fly by me.
I wonder if it?s one of those things I don?t need

Like a bag you unpack at the end of a trip
You?re wondering why did I take all of this?
These things I don?t need, weigh me down
I woke up today and I made up my mind
From now on I?ll Leave all those things I don?t need behind
