Ugly Luggage

Ugly Luggage
Gelinas/Torrington

It was back in 2003 that Ugly Luggage was written.  One of the first songs that came out of the beginnings of our recording home sessions.  We added this song to the track lineup for the Dawning Eternity EP.

Ugly Luggage Lyrics

It’s no secret I’m an open book
I’ve seen plainly how grim things have looked
And I know there’s no cover for trouble
When you’re full of doubt about yourself
about yourself

I’ve had enough of stuffing
this ugly luggage everywhere
I’ve had enough of stuffing
this ugly luggage everywhere

Maybe I’ll hop a plane somewhere
Re arrange my care

Collect my suitcase stickers from every air port
And grow my beard for sport
Yeah baby the safest way to travel
when you’re leaving me behind
Is telling me so plainly that I will survive

I’ve had enough of stuffing
this ugly luggage everywhere
I’ve had enough of stuffing
this ugly luggage everywhere

  1. I like the style of the song and its metophorical elements. It reminded me of the song skinny love by bon iver which i suppose has a similar metorphorical element to the lyrics. Is this song going to be released to the public? I was looking for a link or something to listen to how it sounds.

    • Hi Chris,

      Thank you! We haven’t released this song on an album at this time. It was previously available on a limited edition we made way back in 2004 and we look forward to doing a reissue when we can. Currently we are working on an album of new songs that will be released in a few more months.

      Cheers,

      Thanks!

  2. Hey Marcel!
    So, I’m also a musician who plays piano and sings to. Your style is very much like the singer/songwriter style of Billy Joel, Elton John, and so on. I love the sound of your music but I think one thing you can do is create a better quality videos. I can barely hear the piano in the video and when I do it sounds kind of muddy. Of course, you can only do so much with the equipment we have but otherwise you are doing good. Also the bio on the page is uber long and I’m not sure it entices people to read it. Good luck to you and you definitely earned yourself a bookmark!

    • Thanks Sal,

      I have a plan of action for increasing the video and sound quality. I’ve just gotta get one more piece of equipment and then I’m all set! I agree with you they currently sound kinda lower quality direct from the camera’s mic. We are glad to be starting somewhere, and look forward to implementing our improvements in the very near future.

      Cheers!

    • Hey there we go. I figured out that problem with the Bio at the bottom and it’s all straightened out.
      Thanks for pointing that one out!
