Boxes

lyrics

I once had a love, and it filled up my heart
Now it fills me with heavy, not quite like the start
It fills me with empty in here by myself
And all the boxes on my shelf are empty
Empty as well
I once had the soft grass, had shade from the heat
Took this ground for granted, now it's gone from my feet
Where once she would tell me that her eyes were mine
Now this room seems crowded
And I'm in the back of the line

No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away

There's more second chances, more fish in the sea
But I'm not one for fishing when I'm dead on the beach
When you've got a fire, just hold back the fuel
'Cause no matter what I do
I was, I was the fool
When I had the oyster, I searched for the shells
But now that you're gone, I don't want no one else
Now all of these boxes are empty as hell
And all of my words are empty
Empty as well

No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
No ink for the paper
No salt for the wound
No rest for the weary
No stone for the tomb
No hammer to nail these two feet where they lay
'Cause the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
I said the ground that you gave me
You've taken away
I said the ground that you gave me
I threw it, I threw it away
