Boxes

Boxes

Listen To This Song On thesixtyone.com:

I’m laid out in cardboard all over the floor
Box tape and bubble wrap and paper packed tight
Around the fragile parts of my life

And it’s just one more step in a different direction
One foot in front of the other again
It’s just one more deep breath and jump over the threshold
I never dreamed I’d be back here again

These books are so heavy; the weight of my mind
All dog-eared pages with scribbled-in margins
Expensive volumes on cheap shelves

And it’s just one more trek to a different location
Four more wheels on the pavement again
It’s just one more unknown path leading into the twilight
I never wanted to be here again

Tokens and baubles and so much old junk
Sentimental secrets in these tangible trinkets
If these walls could talk they’d whisper, they’d scream:

“I am in pieces
I am in boxes
Laid out in cardboard all over the floor
I am in pieces
I am in boxes
All over the floor”

And it’s just one more phase of a life in transition
One more journey through looking glass land
It’s just one more movement to shatter my standstill
I never thought I’d be back here again

And it’s just one more step in a different direction
One more trek to a different location
It’s just one more phase of a life in transition

And I never wanted to be here again
Never wanted to be back here again
In pieces
In boxes
All over these floors
