When Last I Left (demo)

When Last I Left

I could take our story
And sell it as a song
So that people on the internet
Can judge the way we carried on

But I wouldn't put you
Into that path of harm
Because I know
You've been that way before

So I just want to tell you that
I think about you when I'm sad
I think about the kid we almost had
How she'd be eight

And I don't need your sympathy
And I don't want you here with me
I'd just like to check and see
If you're okay

For when last I left
Through your open door
I couldn't have loved you more
I couldn't have loved you more

If you're somewhere laughing
If your heart is full
I pray you'll stay there
All your days
Wherever you call home

But if you're hurting badly
If you're bleeding out
I hope you'll call me up
So I can help

'Cause I just want to tell you that
I think about you when I'm sad
I think about the life we wanted
On a farm

And I don't need your sympathy
And I don't need you here with me
It's just been a little bit rainy
And I hope you're warm

The last I left
Through your open door
I couldn't have loved you more
I couldn't have loved you more

(audio sample)

On these lonely days
When I'm feeling down
You're what I think about
You're what I think about

But I shouldn't say
These kinds of things aloud
'Cause I'm not reaching out
No, I'm not reaching out

It's just...

When last I left
Through your open door
I couldn't have loved you more
I couldn't have loved you more

  1. Sad song, but sounds great!

  2. Can we download this anywhere? Will it be on iTunes or Spotify?

    • Maybe in the distant future. I’d like to package a bunch of my demos into a collection for release eventually, but for now, it will just live here.

  3. Beautifully sad and exceedingly relatable.

  4. Baby, I love you. And I love this song.

  5. Wow this is really good. one of your best ones yet
