It just occurred to me that I
Am living in a box
With the lid shut tight
And the key inside the lock
It was just revealed to me
That I am quite a mess
With my feelings beating on the walls
And my heart inside my chest

I want to see what life is
I want to feel what love is
I want to hear the music
Ringing in my ears
I want to see the sunrise
I want to see the stars at night
I want to feel something real
But I am living in a box

It just occurred to me
That I don't understand
Why I'm living in the dark
With a candle in my hand
I just remembered
That my life will someday end
I need to get out of here
'Cause the flame is nearly dead

I want to see what life is
I want to feel what love is
I want to hear the music
Ringing in my ears
I want to see the sunrise
I want to see the stars at night
I want to feel something real
But I am living in a box

Reach your hand out to me
Reach your hand out to me
And turn the key
Lift the lid off the box
Lift the lid off the box
And set me free

I want to see what life is
I want to feel what love is
I want to hear the music
Ringing in my ears
I want to see the sunrise
I want to see the stars at night
I want to feel something real
But I am living in a box
