Lyrics of Box

Don't put me in a box
Oh, please don't put me in a box
I won't be in the box for very long.

All my life I had this trouble.
Some would think they really know me.
I'd show them once that I was available
So they assumed that my time was for them and not for me.

Don't put me in a box
and try not to seal it with locks.
I don't think you truly know me.
It's not where I belong.
My stubborness is very strong
So I won't be in the box for very long.

There was this one time that I felt alone.
I just needed some one to be there with me.
They were convinced that I was very needy.
No matter what I'd say, they just couldn't let it be.

Don't put me in a box
and don't try to seal it with locks.
I don't think you truly know me.
It's not where I belong.
My obstiness is very strong
So I won't be in the box for very long.

People think I am very outgoing.
Sometimes I tell them that's not who I am.
That inside I am really very shy.
You'd think they would get it
but NO They'd assumed it was a lie.

Don't put me in a box
and don't try to seal it with locks.
I don't think you truly know me.
It's not where I belong.
My willfulness is very strong
So I won't be in the box for very long.

Now I'm really trying to be the best I can be.
But sometimes people make it very hard.
I have this love, hate relationship.
I feel I always have to be on my guard.

Don't put me in a box
and don't try to seal it with locks.
I don't think you truly know me.
It's not where I belong.
My arrogance is very strong
So I won't be in the box for very long.

No. I won't be in the box for very long.
