The box

I have to box you up

I have to become mean 

I’ll get hurt time and again,

If I set you free 

I’m sorry you can’t be happy 

I’m sorry but you’re to pure 

The world we’re in is poisonous 

And I’ve yet to find the cure 

So you have to hide for now 

That’s why you have to run 

If not you will be blinded 

When you think you’ve found the one 

Go away and leave for now 

Go away and let me work 

Go away and come back later, 

That way you won’t get hurt 

I want to make you happy 

But I have to say goodbye 

I had to box you up, that’s why I’m cold inside.
