Won’t Leave Them Behind

Written by John Jackson

I knew this day would come

But I won’t feel so lonesome

I’ll be keeping you in mind

Don’t need a souvenir

The times we’ve shared I will hold dear

I’ll always have them to remind

I don’t know if we’ll meet again

But if we do, I’ll remember when

And I won’t have regret

‘Cause visions of you I can’t forget

I won’t leave them behind

I’ve traveled so many roads

Passing through so many zip codes

Always wondering what I’ll find

I don’t worry whether I belong

‘Cause I never stay in one place for too long

I’m not easily confined

Please don’t think that I’m afraid to care

I’ll cherish you everyplace, everywhere

I haven’t learned to settle down

But I’ll always keep the memories around

I won’t leave them behind
