Don't Box Me In
You walk, I'll run
And follow right behind you
You call, I'll come
And I won't remember where I come from
Over there at the end of the bar
This fish keeps swimming in a jar
I feel a tug on the line which end
Will I be on this time

Don't box me in
Don't box me in

One day I'll show them just what I'm made of
There'll be
A time when I won't remember what I was afraid of
And I'll be swimming in the sea
No banging on this glass for me
My eyes saw red when my life turned blue
So I'm leaving everything that's true
And I'll jump into
A brand new skin
And then you won't be able to box me in

Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Let go

There's a few places 'round
That I've never been
There's an ocean out there
That I gotta swim
There's a river that flows
Right past my door
I wonder
I wonder

And if sometimes I can't seem to talk
You'll know this blackboard lacks a piece of chalk

Don't box me in
I told you not to
Don't box me in

Don't box me in
Don't box me in
Let go
