I shall put you in my box
My fragile heart so that it cannot be broken anymore
My hasty mind that is easily tempted by the world
And I shall cover my head with my box

I shall put in my box
The painful life I live
The tragedy I experience every day of my life
The tears that will help me sleep at night

I shall put in my box
The bad memories that make it hard for me to move on with life
And I will find a place in my heart to notice righteousness in times of tragedy

My box is fashioned with pain and sorrow
And it is carved in black as a symbol of darkness
With a flimsy, glaring cover

I shall put in my box
The life I wish to live
The impressions I wish to make
And the moments I wish I had
