I’ve been covered up for so long
So afraid of all that was wrong
In the darkness of the box, happiness surrounds me
When light peaks through, the things on me, I hate to see
So in my box I choose to stay
I’ll come out on a better day.
Don’t open the box, you’re not ready
When you get what get try to remain steady
You’ve pulled me out of my comfort zone
So when I come out you better not be gone.
I’ve finally found the courage to be myself today
You’ve convinced me to come and put the box away
But if I come out and you don’t like what you see
I’m going back to my box and throwing away the key
Because the darkness around has become my friend
With the darkness and silence I don’t have to pretend.
You’ve opened the box, you think you’re ready
So here we go, come get it
This is me, its all I am
So you better take it like a man.
