"Boxes" as written by and Charlie Winston....
As a child with ocean eyes I smiled at a world existing just for me.
Without boxes, borders, boundaries, I built dreams.
But like plastic building blocks, they we're knocked down to the ground.
I grew up.
To a world of compromise, analyzing what it means to dream.
I don't wanna really understand everything in my world it spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand, blowing kisses in the wind, we'll fly away in our dreams.
From the boxes, they'll put us in.

Who should we propose to be?
Who am I suppose to be?
With these empty building blocks, I could make a thousand me's.
I don't wanna really understand, everything in my world it spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand, blowing kisses in the wind, we'll fly away in our dreams.
From the boxes, they'll put us in.

And I'm told we all fit in.
But why should I belong to one thing?
Who should we propose to be?
Who am I suppose to be?
With these plastic building blocks, I could make a thousand me's.

I don't wanna really understand, everything in my world it spoils the fun for me
Come on darling you can take my hand, blowing kisses in the wind, we'll fly away in our dreams.
From the boxes, they'll put us in.
