You get a moment in frozen frame
On every page you turn
You keep what most would throw away
You even kiss what some would burn
Then it's all locked safe inside
Your box of happy memories

There's a wreck walking round your town
Using the same name as me
He's a bombed out shell because well
There's nothing where his sanity used to be
Now his heart and mind's been consigned
To your box of happy memories

And there's not much room to breathe
And you know that fine detail
But you shut the lid down tight anyway
And you hope nobody's there
But can't you hear my suffocating cry
From your box of happy memories

Now the summer has opened up the streets
And there's a chance in every bar
A clear night sky almost seems to speak
Get yourself a new start
But I can't get free while I'm
Still in your box of happy memories

There are worse places to be
At least I get to you sometime somehow
There's a sad face that you don't have to see
And words you don't have to hear out loud
Well you know exactly what you find
In your box of happy memories

And there's not much room to breathe
And you know that fine detail
But you shut the lid down tight anyway
And you hope nobody's there
But can't you hear my suffocating cry
From your box of happy memories

You get a moment in frozen frame
On every page you turn
You keep what most would throw away
You even kiss what some would burn
Then it's all locked safe inside
Your box of happy memories
