Suitcase

Working as a counselor at a summer camp, Rohan Edwards and his fellow counselors discover that one of them is stealing suitcases from the girls’ cabins.

 

First report of a missing suitcase
From the girls cabins
A few days later someone else
Had theirs stolen
Then someone found all the suitcases
Hidden in the woods
We figured out who it was
Taking people’s stuff

 

Wish I could understand what’s going through her head
Wish I could tell her what she’s doing’s wrong (x2)
I want to feel control again
I want to feel release
I want the world to make sense
Wish I could breathe

 

They made her work in the kitchen
She never apologized
She didn’t seem any different
After she was caught
When I’d walk past with my campers
She would come right out
She would give them cookies
Trying to win them over

 

Wish I could understand what’s going through her head….

 

I wonder if she thinks about it now
I wonder if she regrets what she did
I wonder if she’s changed
I wonder if she thinks about it now
(x2)

 

Now, a year later,
The summer’s really good
A total switch from the year before
Because she’d moved on
But i still wonder, how could she make that
Trouble and mistrust.
I’m still stuck in the past
Still stuck in the past

 

Wish I could understand what’s going through her head…
