BOXES
Patty Griffin


Closed down the house now on this sad affair

very last step of a thousand steps there

and will we every reach the sky now I won't care

He called me liar when I told him I loved him

and I thought it was plain as the sky above him

He called me a liar

Yeah, he called me a liar


And I got these boxes piled up on the lawn

And I say to myself in a little while I'll be gone

And he will just turn back into the house and go on

And my car will drive away and turn into a song


He got the lampshade, I got the cat.

Strange sensation, coming down to that

Strange sensation, coming down to that ...baby

He's got the four walls and I've got the sky of gray

He said he'd like to get out of harm's way

Ooooohhh

Get out, baby


And I got these boxes piled up on the lawn

And I say to myself in a little while I'll be gone

And he will just turn back into the house and go on

And my car will drive away and turn into a song

He wants me to understand and he wants me to say

how I understand we'd be better off this way

wants me to pack my things and he wants me to go

but he sure does care about me, oh he wants me to know


I got these boxes piled up on the lawn

And I say to myself in a little while I'll be gone

And he will just turn back into the house and go on

And my car will drive away and turn into a song
