Clean Up On Aisle Five

Album: Behind This Guitar (2016)
  • I stopped off at the grocery store
    To pick up a few things
    And I was reaching for some Cheerios
    When I heard someone say my name
    I knew exactly who it was
    My heart started to race
    I turned around my legs got weak
    When I saw her face

    There stood the girl that broke my heart
    Just a year ago
    I thought that I was over her
    But little did I know
    That running into her like that
    Would leave me in a total mess
    Wishing that we never said goodbye

    And if I wasn't standing in that store I might have laid right on that floor and cried
    I heard that voice I saw that smile
    Clean up on aisle five

    She ran over and hugged my neck
    I didn't want her to let go
    She smiled and said I looked just like a kid
    With my box of Cheerios
    We laughed and talked about old times
    Which wasn't all that smart
    Cause it just left me with an emptiness
    When she pushed away her cart

    And if I wasn't standing in that store I might have laid right on that floor and cried
    I heard that voice I saw that smile
    Clean up on aisle five

    She walked away looked back and smiled
