Cory Branan – Crackerjack Heart lyrics

It's the way you always did those little things
That set me up and tore me down
When you raised hell in the Burger King
'cause they stopped making those
Cardboard crowns
It's the way you look in these photographs
I can't bring myself to throw away
You're still a rush of color on the tilt-o-whirl
It's just the background that's turning gray
Something I needed in that shot
Something I need
Girl I miss your crackerjack heart
And the fake tattoos that say 'Forever Yours'
I could tear this town apart
Looking for a toy, but that's not the point
When all I'm after is a simple surprise
It's the way you taste like a storm
Rolling in across the bed
The way you answer me with those eyes
Speaking volumes about things unsaid
The way your dumbest joke finds a laugh
That's been welling in my darkest place
Ever since I was an atom or a star
Smiling like I had a face
Just waiting for that stupid joke
Waiting for you
The way you walk out of a room
And leave me wonderin' what I'm doing there
In the same way just one Northern-bound train
Turned this whole damn town into nowhere
I'm a bit shy of lonesome
Far cry from you

    Cory has a way with words that makes you picture these wonderful descriptions of love. He can't get her off his mind, he describes all these things that an average person would not notice about another. "The way you answer me with your eyes, speaking volumes about things unsaid" is a beautiful description of his love and affection for her. The crackerjack heart means that he wants to know her deeply, and he does, but ther is something else inside of her. He would tear away any shackles or bindings to discover what it is, just to know who she truly is.
