Things I Left Behind

Jenny Ray
Jenny Ray/Jerry Silverstein


The hook actually came from a conversation between Jenny and Michael Martin at ASCAP. Jenny told me about it and we brainstormed about how to approach the hook. Most of our co-writing comes from digging deep into our personal experiences and extrapolating from them, never letting the truth get in the way of a good story.

"I thought I had to leave it all to see what I could find

But my heart was one of those things I left behind"
