about

Unpacking Boxes
Adrienne Sommers / Ashley Cleveland

lyrics

There are boxes I saved of my dad's country songs
I thought I’d burn them one day
I’m so glad I held on

There’s a piece of his soul in every note
Better than pictures—these songs that he wrote
And I’m tryin' to understand
Through the dyin’ how to reach this man

There’s a box of forgiveness for the pain that he caused
I thought it was empty
For years I was lost

I pawned his guitar, I’m sorry I did
But I’ve got these songs that tell me he lived
And I’m tryin' to understand
Through the dyin’ how to reach this man

I’ve got a box of paints and when I think of my dad
How he loved yellow and serenaded me with all that he had

There’s a piece of my soul in every note
Better than pictures—these songs that he wrote
And I’m tryin’ to understand
Through the dyin’ how to reach this man
