Inside my hand-me-down suitcase
there are newspapers full of my past
I carried them north but they’re heavy
and they put too much strain on my back

So I dropped them halfway to Seattle
yeah I dropped them and only looked back
to watch as they fell by the wayside
and I lifted my eyes as they crashed

The moon and the ocean were talking
they said healing would come in time
It’s been a while since we knew hope was lost
every now and again I still cry

But I dropped them halfway to Seattle
I’ve been trying my best to move on
To surrender a dream is a heavy, heavy thing
And you know what you lost when it’s gone
honey, know what you lost when it’s gone

That fresh oak tree outside my window
bleeds sap from its scars just like mine
The wind and the rain made it fight for its life
but I’ve watched it come out stronger every time

So I’m fixing my eyes on my savior
He knows all the scars that I’ve made
I’ll fight hard as an oak tree
cause there’s joy in the life that He gave

Healing is a journey
will you walk with me
It might be miles and miles and miles
before these ocean eyes can see

I know Jesus is a healer
will you walk with me
And remind me that He’s got a reason for all
of this heartbreak I’m feeling
