Lyrics:

Old Shoebox
Copyright Maxim Senin, 2014

You are standing in the doorway
Shoe box in your hand
The fuming injured looks
That no one can withstand
My heart sank to the stomach
And now I'm feeling trapped
Guess you found the photographs
I never should have kept
/break/
Eye contact and composure!
Buddy, get a grip!
Just pull yourself together
And try not to slip
It only takes a second
I hang up my coat
Through treacherous waters
I'll keep my ship afloat
/Pre-chorus/

Let's sit down in the kitchen
I'll tell you about those
Just sit back and listen
How the story goes

/Chorus/
There ain't no need to worry
When all is said and done
Just want you to remember:
You are the only one
You are the only one

/Solo/
This is me in Paris
Three German girls I've met
We drank champagne and mingled
And I kissed them for a bet
Here's Linda, pretty waitress
Kept topping off my cup
She didn't have a car and
I used to pick her up

June was a precious blossom
So delicate and sweet!
A little bird of paradise,
Adorably petite
Nicole, a fiction writer
novels, like Dumas
They say she is amazing but
She is comme ci comme a

/Pre-chorus/
Don't think of them as "trophies"
It sounds like a cliche
The tokens of what made me
The man I am today

/Chorus/
There ain't no need to worry
When all is said and done
Just want you to remember:
You are the only one
You are the only one
/Solo/

One picture that's not here
My biggest crush of all
Sometimes I still can see her
In dreams of the enthralled
You know life is a journey
And now this street is crossed
A lingering old yearning
A picture that I lost

This is Rosa from Hermosa
Helen Bell -- from hell!
Sometimes you meet the odd ones
There isn't much to tell
Melissa-the-librarian
In her green tank top,
"Natacha with mustach-a"
In frozen yogurt shop

/Bridge/
The happiness and romance,
The struggle, pain and strife
It's just a part of riding
the ups and downs of life

/Chorus/
And now I see you smiling
I'm glad you're having fun
Just want you to remember:
You are the only one
You are the only one
